My brain will "Never" get the hang of seam allowances.
My husband got the Kaffe Fassett book, Passionate Patchwork through inter library loan in record time!
I had previously checked it out, but that pattern had not garnered my attention previously...
I now know why when I thought "all you do is cut a square in half diagonally & sew it back together" did not work... That is not what you do.
What you "could" do is follow the directions; however, my stripes are wider & more uniform than the ones in his pattern, so I won't. I know how to use the concept...
Which brings us to the idiot quilter question...
The center of the quilt is made up of small blocks, while the outside is made up of large blocks.
The large blocks are twice the size of the small blocks, so that everything fits together nicely without "spacers."
So if my small blocks were cut 3.5 inches, would my large blocks be cut 6.5 inches (or some other measurement)?
What if in the end I need to do 4.5 for the small blocks instead?
I know the burning question on everyones mind after my weekend full of goals met - did you sew last night - HECK no.
But I did cook & eat the beets!
& I went to my OB appointment, the kitten was moving a lot, but we are both doing fine. I got a script for the 20 week sonogram, I'll make the appointment after mr. Calico cat changes my dentist appointment.
