I am a ruler junkie, I can't resist them. I found this in my ruler bin.
And here they were included in the ruler package, perfect for the 4.5 unfinished block size.
A plus is that this works perfectly for using up a bunch of those 5 and 5.5 inch squares that I have collected over several years with no idea how to use them. I just cut them up into 4.5 inch squares.
There were lots and lots of them, and also plenty of scrap fabrics to cut more. This project is going to take a whole bunch of them.
Now I found that these little babies require a lot of time constructing. So I pin the curved pieces at night while watching TV with the husband and they are ready to sew the next day.
Yes I do pin. I know that some people just pin in the center and go for it, but I just can't seem to get good results without lots of pins.
And here we go. One of many ready to sew into a complete block. I will need 224 of these little guys to make 56 blocks.
Number one done and a second one done too.
This one needs a bit more of a pressing. But I am on a roll.
