I previously showed you the material I wanted to use for my next quilt project
I decided to use the process used in the video with the center square. Now I am not too proud to say that I look for deals on material. I went into St. Vincents the other day while out running errands and found a soft pink standard pillowcase (in good shape) for 50 cents. After washing it I was able to get 8 squares out of it. But I had to cut them 9 3/4". (video uses 10") I also bought a full sheet in a medium blue that will be more squares and I want to find another shade of pink to use.
Anyway, last night I cut out several butterfly squares that ended up being 5 1/4 ", but the process is the same and it really works well.
This morning I finished all 8 blocks and I must say it really is faster than all the piecing and cutting you would have to normally do. I am all for fast and easy!
And the little seams on the back are all closed in and neat. I love it!
So a quilting I will go....have a great sewing day everyone.
