Normally I don't go in for specialty rulers like this, but I had a JoAnn's 50% off coupon and didn't really "need" anything, so I decided to try one! I chose the Quarter Cut Ruler over the Shape Cut Ruler as it has indentations at the 1/4 inch mark - I thought for my purposes it might be more useful! If you click on the photo, you'll see the 1/4 inch indentations a little better.
In no time at all I had a huge stack of 2 inch squares cut! I placed the 5 inch squares under the ruler and sliced, then lifted the ruler up and placed it opposite to my first cuts and sliced again! I felt I had a lot more accuracy -- and some fun as well!
Here is what I've sewn so far - eleven more of these to go, then setting blocks and borders! I've also joined Anne Marie's 9-Patch Challenge - and this will count as my first project for the challenge! Notice I said "first project" -- I really do hope to do a couple more before the challenge ends - after all, it's about using up stash and goodness knows, I have a lot!!
A while back I bit my lip and changed to the new Blogger designer which has been out for some time. I know others have had problems with it, but so far I'm liking it OK. The fonts sizes are a little different from the old Blogger, so if you're wondering why my posts fonts aren't consistent - it is because I'm trying different types out!
Tomorrow I hope to have pictures of something we recently acquired on our trip to the big city!
