First off, if you are here looking for Yard Sale Saturday --- click HERE!
It’s still going strong, and there are many vendors with great goodies ready for you!
I was able to catch up on all three of my Jubilee blocks ---I’m so glad I didn’t shoot for something more intricate to celebrate my 50th year or it just wouldn’t happen!
Maybe the Big Jubilee will be finishing the hexie top sometime this year ----corner 3 is getting closer!
I had a great time doing these blocks…and I want to share with you how I did the “Cups & Saucers” variation.
There are so many ways that you can work with a block! I love a mental challenge...and this was a fun one!
Randy’s on the left, Mine on the right!
Look closely! They look the same from far away, but Randy’s has 4 half square triangles, 8 flying geese units and a center square. I drew up mine for paper piecing and pieced it in one unit, eliminating many seams! SO EASY!
Here is what the foundation looks like! Would you like to try it? You can get a copy of the foundation HERE.
For those who had trouble printing out the Basket Block in the right size last time….this is why:
You must RIGHT CLICK on the pattern on the screen, and click SAVE AS. It will save as a pdf file on your computer, so save it somehwere you can get to it. Your desktop is good.
Then you must open Adobe and then open the file from within adobe to print it in the size it is supposed to be. You can’t just print it from the monitor view because the printer will print out whatever your screen resolution is. When printing PDF patterns, always choose “NONE” as the scaling so that the page will print out the size it was meant to.
This block finishes at 6", and it will print out that way if you print it out correctly.
Now that these three blocks are done, I’m off to catch up on the two bonus blocks I still need to do….
Oh and that Cups & Saucers block?
It came from THIS! These fabrics were in the birthday box that Bonnie M sent me. It was no effort at all to cut this apart using the same methods I showed in my “De-Boning The Shirt” Video! Most of the block came from the two collar pieces..it’s amazing how far those shirt parts can go!
