It is taking me longer than I anticipated to make the blocks because I have to do a lot of cutting....boring! I am trying to do some every day but it really can get tedious. ;) I have also been digging deep into my strip bins and some of the strips have been in there so long that they are very hairy. I guess it is about time they get used. :)
If I make this quilt according to the pattern in the magazine, there are a total of 50 large blocks and I think 8 partial blocks needed. If you consider that each block takes 4 smaller block units that means a whole lot of 2.5"squares and hsts. I didn't follow the pattern instructions from the magazine to cut my hsts because I think there would have been too much waste. I used my own process and this includes the use of my easy angle ruler. This ruler is so easy to use and convenient for cutting hsts from my 2.5" strips. I think it is one of my most important tools!
