On Monday night I concentrated on binding the Scrappy Stars – I got one side done and started on the second side and picked up on that last night to work some more.
Yesterday during the day though I concentrated on the Retro Air Ship Propeller blocks and six of them done – all that I had cut out. The six new blocks.
And with all the rest. It sure grew fast! I will need to make sure I cut out a stack again – it sure goes a lot faster and my hand made templates worked out great for it. I intend to do On Point setting and probably with sashing – the half square triangles for setting will be numerous colors of the backing fabric not sure what color the sashing will be and I do not – at this point know what size the quilt will be – it will depend on how tired I get of the quilt as usual LOL – I will try for queen size though.
I had mentioned that this blue/green block turned out smaller than all the rest – I’m not sure if I will use it but thought I would try to make the block the same size as the others by adding strips on all size – I do not know if I like it mixed with the others as you can see the seam work so well – of course with batting and backing it would not show up as much as it does now – it will go on the bottom of the stack and might not be used.
Fussy cut center on this one. Now I had mentioned to someone that I do not use even one pin when doing curves and I was asked how do you do that as many use many pins! I used to do that too until I watched a demo on the Curve Master Foot. I had one at one time and realized you didn’t even need the foot and I sold it to someone who wanted it – it is all in the way you hold you fabric as it goes under the presser foot. Just do a search on “Curve Master Foot” and You Tube with numerous videos will come up to watch and you will see what I mean. Of course it helps that I cut my outside pieces larger than they need to be so I can square up when finished but it really works well and I didn’t use one pin to put these blocks together.
