After getting behind a couple of clues due to being out of town, etc., I'm happy to say I'm caught up with Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt clues. Yay!
I really appreciate the piecing techniques I've adopted thanks to Bonnie's teaching. They are all just minor things that really do make a difference in the long run. For example...the little spin in this 4-patch helps reduce bulk in the seam, which makes things a little easier to quilt through. And, it helps two blocks fit together because the seam allowances "butt" up together nicely.
It's especially important with these pinwheels...that's a lot of bulk right there in the center when you just press to one direction...
I love the Easy Angle ruler too...and how everything fits so well together! Look at that intersection and all the seams cross perfectly! :) Thanks for all the tips Bonnie!
I'm guessing we'll probably start assembling blocks soon. I played with a few ideas, but I don't think I'm even close to knowing what we'll do with these units! I think I'll be happy with all my color choices, whatever the layout may be....I kind of hope there will be more neutral added in, but who knows!!
If you want to check out everyone else's progress...head over to Bonnie's linky post.
