I am doing a BOM for the red and white quilt “Rubies, Diamonds and Garnets too” by Bernadette Kent. I am about 75% done, still have five more blocks and about 800 HST for the sashing. This weekend I made this block.
Y-seams everywhere. I was feeling pretty good after assembling it, only had to unsew a few stitches, things were lining up, I had points. Squaring it up to 12 ½ inches, however, wasn’t going to happen. It was 11 ½ square, where did that inch of fabric go? I had carefully cut all the pieces, templates and squares, measure twice cut once. I had carefully sewn the 1/4 inch seams, but nope, it just wasn’t going to be a 12 ½. Notice the thin border/framing strips? Now it works for me.
Linking up with Judy’s Patchwork Times Design Wall today.
