What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

What you need is squares that easily divide by 4 when they are cut into half square triangles and trimmed. So you can cut 9 inch or 10 inch squares. That last quilt started with 9" but I am cutting the next batch at 10" so layer cake fabric works great. You also need contrast of either light and dark or two colors that show up against each other. For instance blue and yellow or green and red for instance.

The instructions for this are wonderful and it uses only squares and rectangles.....the odd shapes are made by sewing squares and then trimming.

Oh that is lovely!!! 

What are you saying....we have to figure out what to use it for after making. I would think these would make lovely gifts.

Maybe Pirate will become addicted to making those exquisite boxes and then have to decide which of her longtime friends to send them to as the holiday season approaches.

A gal can dream, right? 

Of course there is the problem of her three daughters ....
