Quilting Gail is back with a 2nd edition of Stay At Home Round Robin. She roped in 6 of us to join along this time during the design process. We are just 2 weeks away from the finish!!
The fabric was delivered Friday and I got the rest of my stars done and went on to this week’s clue. Susan at Quilt Fabrication chose Log Cabins!!! I have been on a LC kick lately, so it was a piece of cake.
This time I tried a different method of making LCs. Sometimes my LCs get wonky. I wanted as precise as possible, so it was time to print foundations from EQ8. And somewhere on the internet I saw a trick for easy and cheap foundations.
I will say, this is genius! It tears easier than printer paper and was MUCH cheaper than June Tailor papers. How did it work? Perfect!
Another great tip saved the day for me! Rebecca taught me to use permanent markers to cover those oops moments.
Since I didn’t finish my blocks last week I wasn’t able to show you the completion of my round. And I still can’t show you the completion, because, I am not completing the round until 5-7 clues are done. I will show you how I am handling the last few rounds.
I love it!! It’s ticking all my boxes! The last round of blocks were pieced to a 5″ unfinished size and will make my final round 4.5″ finished. I still have to add a coping strip between round 4 and the last one, but I am waiting until the final block to determine how big that will be. My math is off, so I need to do some figuring to make it work.
Be sure to link up with Quilt Fabrication and then stop by these blogs to see their progress!
