This block is made in 4 sections
and I have learned to measure each
section before I continue on with the
rest of the block.
There are suppose to be 4 shamrocks
in the centre but I thought
that they would be too small to
applique so I added one instead.
We took a trip to Duluth, MN a few days ago and I picked up a few things. Of course, I bought fabric. What is a trip without stopping at a few quilt shops along the way? YKW forgot his book this trip but I wasn't too long in any shop to make him regret stopping.
For a couple of new purses for travelling.
For Pillow shams for the Maple Leaf Quilt.
I couldn't buy Fossil Fern so I
opted for similar colours.
I bought 2 of these to make wall hangings
for YKW and our son.
I found this for the borders.
Isn't it neat with all the animal prints
I also picked up a few handy helpers. I was looking to buy a Gypsy gripper for my rulers but a friend told me that I could purchase something else that would do the same thing for less then half the price. I googled the Safety Gripper that is used in a shower and found one on the Menard's website.
My Safety Gripper
At one of the groups I go to one of the ladies mentioned that the best ruler she ever purchased was the Shape Cut by June Taylor. I am a gadget person so I picked up one of those also.
It looks interesting and I think
I can put it to good use.
