I joined the Simple Sampler Quilt Along at Amy's Creative Side.
It looks like a fun, stressfree project for summer. Amy has some great tutorials on her blog so I'm betting her directions for this quilt will be just as good. I really need to brush up on my quilting skills ...or lack there of ;)
These are the fabrics I chose.
Block number 1 is a super simple 4 patch. In looking at it though I think I have to work better on squaring up my fabric.
Block number 2 is a simple 16 patch. I had to change my fabric choice because when I cut the fabric it looked skewed ...I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
What I am happiest about with these blocks is that they both measure 12.5!! I have been losing 1/4" on the blocks I've made recently.
I think I figured out the problem though. I was lining up my ruler wrong when cutting. Instead of having the line on my fabric edge I had it to the outside. Thank you Maria Peagler for this tip!!
