I do not intend to make a bed size quilt. I am aiming for 42 by 42 inches, which will require 49 blocks.
Now these blades are only 4 inches long, so I can get two out of 5 inch charm squares. I stopped into our Tuesday Morning store and found a number of charm packs with the funky fabric I desired. Not my normal fabric taste, but every once an a while one has to cut loose.
So cutting blades begins. I love the crazy fabrics.
Enough for row one. Five blades per block, 49 blocks, 245 blades. Let the fun begin. Believe me this will take some time.
Her we are, just have to get this set onto a 6.5 inch square.
And the first block is done. I appliquéd the blades down with invisible thread literally 1/16 from the edge. Almost invisible. One done and 244 to go!
It is summer here, about 102 today. My oldest grandson has taken to the pool for the afternoon. What can be better than a loved pet floating away the day in the pool with you. The only thing that may be missing is my daughter's two ducks floating around in there with them.
