Quilting progress on my quilting projects…
I managed to get all 16 of my Virtual Quilting Bee Blocks in their setting triangles, which is basically a square-in-a-square layout.
**Note** Directions were given to cut 6 1/2″ squares, but then changed to 7″! I had already cut mine, which is okay, but the larger block gives you room to square up if everything wasn’t perfect….like that ever happens;)
The tricky thing about these blocks is that when I was making them I really wasn’t thinking about this layout! The first pic is how it will be in the quilt. The second is how I envisioned it. Some blocks are pretty similar, but some look very different.
“On Point” may be a new quilt word for a beginner. It just means that the block appears to stand on its point or corner, rather than the flat base of the square.
The Square-in-a-square setting puts the block on point…but, lets you sew them together like regular quilt blocks. Without the setting triangles, you would have to sew your quilt top together in diagonal rows. It can definitely give a quilt an entire different look.
My Memory Quilt that I am working on is also pretty much DONE! I am counting it as a finish because I just have to quilt a little more in the border and that’s it:)
I will get some better pics and share the details on this one. I had hoped to wrap up my Piper quilt top, but alas my Sunday nap got in the way! All together a successful weekend.
Before I forget…
