As you all know, I have been working on this quilt, SIP.
The Quilty Puppies and Shakespeare in the Park
I get tempted real easy reading the board and seeeing what the other ladies are doing. I had to take a break and do something different and so I started this block of BS.
I have been tempted by Burgoyne Surrounded
I then went back to SIP.I have done quite a lot of catching up on SIP and again needed something else. I saw this Charm quilt and loved it and decided that would be my current diversion lol.
You can go to the following link, print out the color pic for reference of placement and if you join the site, you can download the specs.
Anyway, I cut 360, 2.5 squares, all out of my scrap bin. It can get real confusing if you don't have a method, so here is my little memory trick from a childhood joke.
Two little candy thieves were in the cemetary counting out the candy they stole (at night). They had an odd number of candies, so they left one outside the gate and whoever got to it first, would claim it. They were sharing it out saying, one for you and one for me etc. A couple kids were passing and heard them. The one kid said, looks like they are sharing souls... One for you and one for me , and now for the one outside. Well needless to say, those kids ran like the wind.
Now back to my method of placing the squares. I studied the set up and decided that starting from the left, would be a T, then a Cross, and then one outside, a T a Cross, one outside and so on and this helps me to get it right. Now when going down the side on the right, it's the same as the top and this is where the other half will join as this is only one half of the quilt.
On the left of the quilt, it's one outside, then a T, one outside, a cross, a T, one outside and so on. Bear in mind that I am looking at the side squares with the T's and the Crosses going to the inside. I will up load pics.
I don't just go accross one row, I do the right side and the start building the Crosses right away so I can see what they look like and change. I go all the way to the right and build that line and so on.
In the first pic you see the one outside and a T. The second pic shows the Cross added and the fourth pic shows the one outside.
