Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Hey! I've never done this before, but I will take a stab at it. Feb 28th is a manageable time frame. I'll PM you may addy. Sounds like fun!
Rhonda, you are so talented that I would have thought you did fantastic quilting. I like your many designs although many are more than I can achieve at this point. I appreciate your sharing your designs.
Make it a scrappy happy day!
The Boston Block - sew two pieces of fabric together. Trim one edge sew on a third piece to the bottom. Cut out hte center with a template and tada!! You have a Boston Block. Make as many you need in the colors you need and sew 6 rows of 6 blocks per row and you have a quilt block!!
I have several shortcut blocks that are not hard todo just have a couple more steps or so.
I also have a couple of other ways to cut this that doesn't have as much leftover fabric. I reuse any leftovers when I use this method so no waste.
Rhonda those are just so pretty. I can't wait.

I love how you did that. Its way easier than getting those angles to all magically fit together. I dont mind the fabric waste either if it means those points work. oh no dont mind at all I am in a sick way happy to hear I am not alone. I stitch in the ditch only too. I am getting to where it looks pretty good in my minds eye.. and sometimes regular fmq well looks too busy? too quilted? have to find something I can drool at and wish I had done. I saw a tablerunner in the picture section done by cjtinkle she had such beautiful quilting.. ah that is an inspiration for me. to do some fancy quilting like that.. on a tablerunner or wall hanging lol not a whole quilt. first to make the tops right?
I am quilting in a few minutes waiting for more sunlight and well wish me luck and probably a dozen or so prayers I get it right the first time. This is my test in patience. oh no!
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
Fun part of doing them that way would be to use up scraps for blocks. Hmmm, suggestion for scrap club thread.
