20120317-P1190430.jpg So it's another Swoon weekend kicking off to a good start. I had put everything away for such a long time that I had forgotten where I was. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had cut out all the bits for two blocks then sewed and trimmed all the half square triangles. It makes it a lot easier after that.


I did have to sew the flying geese but it was much easier with my brand, spanking, new short ruler! I don't know how I have survived so long with just long ones! Drawing all those diagonal lines is much easier! I bought this off the web after looking at all the sizes at the Quilt show the other week. I really wanted the neon edgelit ruler but they didn't have any at the show so I bought this one and even with postage it was a bit cheaper than those at the show. Not that I might spending a bit extra to support a shop, but the edgelit was the hook I needed. It's just so... so... neon!


All I had to do was lay all the bits out then sew them all together. I find laying them out helps get patterns the right way up. I know some people don't bother, but when it's big stripes I think it looks neater.

SO two more blocks finished in a day! 20120317-P1190429.jpg
