Christmas Quilt Along - September

Today is the second Christmas Quilt Along that QuiltSue has organised, I made a head start yesterday, and am planning to crack on today (though I confess I have already been distracted by the PC this morning!). Yesterday I cut out my squares and also some triangles to make some stars, I had to have a good rummage in my ruler drawer for the right tools to get the triangles on accurately. A dear friend of mine brought the Quilters Boot back from a holiday in America, it's been quietly sitting and waiting for the right moment and I have to say it was invaluable yesterday. I used the boot end to trim the ears off the triangles, then used the Scrapmaster ruler to trim the corners off the squares. And hey presto, accurate triangles on my squares :o).

  1. I also have that Scrapmaster ruler, it is one of the more useful of the plethora available.

    Have a good sewing day, look forward to seeing the results.
