Question this week: when we teach, what is the one tip you always share: I have only ‘one rule’ in making my quilts, ‘keep your rotary cutter closed when not in use’. Other than that, we are all wired differently, we will therefore have different ways that work best for us, quiltmaking is not one size fits all. I think it is fun that there are many ways to accomplish the same thing!
The Square in a Square block this week is by our friend Betsy Chutchian. It is a fun block to make. Go to her Blog to download the block file.
I want to share how I cut stripes for a block like this. Sometimes I like to tame my stripes, other days I let them go every which way.
To tame the stripes, note that the 2 squares are cut in opposite directions, or a ‘V’, this will allow you to line up the stripes around a square.
Be sure and check the Blogs from the rest of our friends for their tips and tricks.
Happy Hump Day from Jo
