rotary cutter and mat
So this quilt has been on my to-do list since high school. I had all the yellow squares and little blue squares cut. I picked them up in November 2010 when home for Grandpa Brisson's 90th birthday extravaganza and have been looking at them ever since.
Each yellow block has 4 pieces sewn together, making the yellow "blocks" about 8.5" finished, and the little blue ones are about 2" finished (The white sashing between blocks is also 2" finished).
The quilting is really simple-- just straight lines presser-foot distance from the sides. I would have liked to do more, but I need more practice. Also, the lines work nicely on this quilt, which was a bonus.
