One side down and three more to go. And I will need to cut out a lot more pieces – I sure miss counted the stack of pieces I cut yesterday – I don’t know how I did that!
I laid all my pieces on the floor next to one side so I could get a look at colors and have them mixed up a lot and realized that what I had set aside for one side was about 20 or more pieces short and had to add a lot more to come close to 95.5 inches. Here I have down what I think I will need.
And here is one side done – I had to take a couple seams at about an eighth of an inch and then one at the end had too much extra by it so I ended up taking in a couple pieces a little larger – maybe I shouldn’t have been sewing yesterday LOL – so now I have more pieces to cut – better get the 5 inch charm box back out so I can mix more colors in on the next end. Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts.
My AccuQuilt companion set for the 12 inch block came yesterday and here are the 3 sets. I also have a free on line book with 72 block designs that are for the 12 inch Qube and the companion set – I wish it would have been a physical book though instead as there are no pages listed for each block – no index – the front page has all 72 blocks shown but then you have to scroll through to find them and which die is needed.
These Qubes come with a heavy cardboard box to keep your sets in nice and organized. Besides an instruction CD there is also another cutting mat in the box that is the right size for these dies.
After I had all my yarn unraveled and rolled back up into balls, I got back started on the shrug again – well it turn out the second time around – or will I get part way through like last time and unravel again – LOL – with me you can never tell – Someone had posted a link to a video on a pattern for a shrug and I watched it and kind of going with it but didn’t care for the pattern enough to make it exactly like it. I thought I had the measurements right but I think it will be too long – but once I do the folding things for the arms to go through maybe it will be right – I will just continue as I am for now and decide later – good thing of yarn is you can unravel as many times as you like!!
