here, but it's the same as today's!) Perhaps the issue is that I am trying to make the circles too small and this tool is not good for that size.? When I calm down, I'll maybe try it for the third time with the larger size. I just hate to give up on it since it was quite an expensive ruler and I'm making a circle themed quilt, and it's just frustrating that I can't get it to co-operate with me (or me with it?)
Then I decided to use my quilting time for some relaxing sewing (while I ruminate about the next step for my circle SAHR, the IOP plan, and the Christmas to-do list) and all that thinking gave me lots of time to finish up my guild mystery sampler blocks for this month. I am doing 2 samplers...one in browns and one in scrappy brights and am amazed at how my pile of scraps is getting used up!
These are the December blocks #7 and #8 in the two colourways.
These are all the brown blocks so far...4 more to sew and then the sashing and borders! My plan on this is to finish the blocks for the 2 samples by the end of the year, so that I can start a new 2011 block sampler using the new 100 blocks magazine!
Becky sent me some of hers! I won a draw on her blog and these scraps arrived yesterday...look at these treasures! I've already sorted them into the string bin, the bright scraps, ...don't you love other people's scraps?!?
Thanks Becky for sharing!
