Here is the lap quilt size (which STILL needs to be quilted).
Since I didn't need yet another unfinished lap quilt, I chose to demonstrate the smaller blocks. The technique is exactly the same either way. I gathered a selection of fall colors.
The class included instruction on setting a quilt on point and the differences between half square and quarter square triangles. I like to wait until I have some of the blocks done before I choose the fabric for the setting triangles, so, during class, I auditioned several possibilities. The class consensus was to use the dark green leaf print.
After class, I experimented with settings. How about a runner? Here are the rows, ready to be sewn together. It looks about a mile long from this angle! It ended up measuring 35" long when all together. Now I want to think about what to do on the ends and/or borders.
MEANWHILE, Sally, Ruth and I discussed swapping Christmas scraps to make "Crooked on Purpose" table toppers. Here is what we are each starting with. So, the fun continues!
I was back at the Dog-Shaming.com website and actually found a fabric related photo of a naughty dog! Enjoy!
