Do you recognize these little blocks?
Jackie has been working on her Box Kite blocks from my Addicted to Scraps column with Quiltmaker Magazine!
Just a fun little block and there is so much you can do with it!
I also spy her Easy Angle Ruler there in the photo…that one little tool that makes half square triangles a breeze – all from the sizes of strips we already keep on hand!
Great job Jackie!
She also sent along this little note with her photo:
Working on Box Kites - Still. Really Enjoy "sewing" with the folks - worldwide. Oldest UFO: string quilt sandwiched and basted for quilting.We were having a “confession session” and I asked listeners what their oldest UFO was!
What is yours?
So here I am ---working on some block samples in different stages of construction for the taping of 6 online courses I’ll be doing for Quiltmaker in August in Golden, Colorado!
It sure would have been easier, had I known ahead of time, to just make these samples as I was making the quilts, but no – I’ve got to back track and make them all over again!
Some blocks just have cut pieces so we can show how they fit together, and then partially constructed units showing progress, and finally a completed block to demonstrate a fine finish.
It’s FUN! But it’s meaning more cutting, more arranging, more baggying things up with labels so they are ready to go.
Some parts are ready to go!
And there is this fun new Tumblers Leader & Ender project going on the side!
Speaking of Tumblers..you’ll find our new side bar badge in the right hand side bar of the blog – feel free to grab it and add it to your own blog or website!
