Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
I’m running a little behind on my Pinwheel Roundabout BOM I am doing with my local Quilt Club.
April’s block is called Lazy Jane’s Sister. I’m not sure where they get the names from but I’m sure it means something to someone who designed it. If there’s a list with their stories out there I’d be interested in seeing it. I used one of the do dads I got from Joann’s last week. I was told that the smaller rotary cutter would work better to cut the fabric around Marti Mitchell’s Perfect Patchwork templates. So let’s see how that worked.
I found that the smaller rotary cutter will take some getting used to. I’m used to the larger one and if felt different. I’m not sure if I have the accuracy with it yet. Maybe a new blade will work better. I don’t think it made as clean cuts as I would have liked. I will try it again on the next block and see if I’ve gotten the feel for it.
Even though I had a little trouble with the rotary cutter, I was still able to get my block together. I am pleased with the results.
The templates are making it easy to match up the points or maybe I’m just getting better at piecing. Most of the points are nearly spot on.
Here is a look of all the blocks I have so far stuck on my design wall. I’m enjoying doing a different block each month. It’s not as repetitive as doing the same thing over and over.
Here’s a reminder of what the finished product may look like. I’ve stuck to the patterns color way. I’m enjoying the warm colors, my alternating blocks will be the center fabric of my blocks and I haven’t picked out the sashing and borders yet.
I can’t wait to go to the club meeting in two weeks and see everyone’s blocks.
The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link. Please visit them and see what others are up to. There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
