Mini Quilt and New Rulers
I love making mini quilts and playing with scraps is even more fun.
So here is my latest project.
I also need to practice a lot more with my machine quilting...
I came across Robin Ruth Rulers which allows me to make Mariner's Compass blocks from strips. There are very clear instructions on Youtube so here is the test block I made.
The blocks can be made in 16 sizes from 6" - 36" using the exact same process.
Another ruler that I have been wanting to buy for a very long time is Deb Hunter Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Ruler.
Here is my block using that ruler.
I will make a full size quilt at some point....
Although it doesn't look like I have been doing a lot, I actually am working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt but won't post until the top is complete.
I also been using up more of my tiny scraps to make more Log Cabin blogs (4 1/2") and adding it to a quilt I started years ago. I'll just keep going until I have had enough.
I also played with another of my rulers I have had for several years but all that will be for another post.
