First step is ORDER FABRIC if the fav quiltshop has no solids..
meanwhile..you cán do something usefull
One day,you're package will arrive!
Celebrate! and be carefull not to burn holes in the fabric while doing so
White was already present in my stash and when I ordered I wasn't sure what colours I wanted to use. Obviously I picked B&W..
Hang out to dry
I pressed the still folded fabric strips carefully, before I ironed them open.
Take 15 minutes to look for the companion angle you know you have somewhere. C brought it with me from her Florida holiday last year. Bonnie Hunter recommended the triangle in her tutorials and I must say it works great. Thanks for the tip Bonnie!
Press the seam ,press it open en this is what you get.If you don't have one: get one now! I think it's essential for accurate piecing. I was painstakingly precise and still had crooked blocks. With this tool, my blocks were cut exactly square.
If you determined how big your striped blocks turned out, cut black and white squares that same size. My striped ones were 4.5" so i cut a few 4.5"strips and cut those up in 4.5" squares! Patchwork for dummies..
Go to your designwall and stick those blocks on in this order
More progress next time!
