July saw me getting a little behind, but I got on track when I saw that it required (well not really but it was a good excuse) for a new tool. It was the month of Dresden plates – one tradional and one a little more contemporary. As I didn’t trust myself to be that accurate with a homemade template, I treated myself to a tool for guidance – nice and quick with a mini rotary cutter. I think the best bit was picking out all the different fabrics and mixing them up for the traditional plate. I could see myself playing with my scrap fabrics and producing a cushion cover or a few blocks for another quilt this way.
August (well October/November) was a return to basics with some star blocks – Ohio & Double Star. Covering quarter square triangles and introducing flying geese in the double star block.
