Angles and Squares
Last month, I joined the Near North Quilting Guild here in North Bay and signed up for two classes with Heather Stewart (who was the guest teacher). Angles and Squares was one of the classes and we learned a short-cut for making this block. You can go here to read Heather's post about her time at our guild. Heather is a fantastic teacher and I truly learned so much from her and have incorporated many of her tips ..... except for pinning. What can I say, I'm the queen of pinning and quilting is just not comfortable without my straight pins. :o)
What about the addition of some stars. I couldn't decide on red or blue stars and may just go with the two colours.
Can you see what I'm doing with the striped fabric? This will make it more interesting instead of having the stripes going all the same way.
We'll see if it stays like this or those stars get taken out. That is all part of the creative process. Playing around with the 'what if ' ideas.
I will be posting about the other class that I took from Heather. Log Cabin Chevrons and I tell you, log cabin blocks and I do not get along well. But that is another story for another day.
Have a great day!
