- cut a square of fabric the same size as the D9P block (after your 9 patch has been quartered) - draw a line from corner to corner on your plain square - place your plain square on top of a D9P block (right sides together)
- using the line as a guide, sew 1/4 inch seam down each side of the line
- cut apart on the line
- press your block (seam goes towards the plain square)
- you should have 2 different blocks
Ann is hosting another New Year's Eve mystery quilt at Fabricaholicsanonymous. i LOVE Ann's mystery quilts, so i am really looking forward to this one (my 3rd NYE mystery with Ann)
i have a personal rule for mystery quilts - if i want to join in, i need to find all of the fabric required in my stash! so this morning i printed out the NYE mystery quilt requirements list and searched my stash for the perfect group of fabrics:
FOCUS - colored squares
POP - yellow glitter
BACKGROUND - white with little colored dots
MEDIUM - aqua
i also found the courage to finally add the purse feet to my multi-tasker tote - they were a bit fiddly, but i am really happy that i put them in
well, here is my almost completed multi-tasker tote - i just have to pluck up the courage to put the bag feet on and i am done!
i ended up making a different flower to decorate the bag (tutorial is here), i decided to make the petals 2 sided (so they wouldn't be too floppy and to help with durability). i simply cut twice as many petals as directed and fused them together with some light weight fusible webbing. yet again, my photos don't do it justice - it is cute!!
