Today will be the last one till Mid June. I am off on a holiday with my girlfriends! 🦁 🐵🐯🛩When I get back I have several business events and business trips. Without time to longarm I have no source of pictures or topics for my blog. To be quite truthful I am also in need of a break. Time to take care of me, physically and mentally. If I find something to blog about in that time, I will surprise you!
Today tough, I want to show you how I figured out how to mark the design I did in this large light triangle of Theresa’s Amazon Star (a Quiltworx pattern).
My favourite rulers are my The Quilted Pinapple rulers both the straight and the curved. I never put them away, they always hang right behind me on my slot wall!
Linda from The Quilted Pinapple had just released new larger curved templates, 30″, 34″ and 36″!!!(The 3 on the farthest right of the photo below) 😍😄😎But alas I had not yet ordered any! Any my current ones were too small….😰🙄🙈 🤢 So what is a girl too do? Why call her hubby, a former math teacher of course! 😻
So Roger quickly came up with a plan.
1. First he had me trace the shape and make a paper template.
5. Now I had a template I could use to mark all my triangles with!
6. My next challenge was to follow this line! So I used a trick I have shown before, used my too small ruler, pivoting it as I went to match the curve I had marked….🙄🙏👊 I nailed it, but it did take perseverance!
So when I was almost done, Three units to go, my new rulers arrived in the mail! Oh so much easier!!!!! 😍😃💃💃💃💃
That’s it for awhile! Unless I find time to write one more before I go. I am behind on blogging about finished quilts, so you may see some of those.
Bye for now, but I will be back! 🙌🙌🙌
