Grids…..let’s consider them for a moment or two. When I consider translating a quilt pattern from the original pattern and instructions for AccuQuilt or my specialty rulers---Half Square Triangle and Quarter Square Triangle Ruler---I consider how the block is divided. At this point, it does not matter what size the block is or what size the pieces are, what matters is how the block is divided into segments. If you look closely at the block above, this block is a 4 x 4 grid.
The Big Reveal and other matters…..
Christmas and New Years came and went so fast…..as always I’m an early bird and waiting for the clue is a challenge for me...I’m with the Aussie’s, feels like I have been waiting all day to begin the fun.
For this block, I thought I would share the process that I use when I piece blocks like these. After cutting all of my units on my Accuquilt cutter, I laid them out on a flannel board to verify placement. You can make your own with a piece of cardboard foam board. I simply wrapped it with white flannel and taped it to the back. I’ve used this for a number of years and it really helps to keep your block pieces in order, especially if you need to move them around at all.
