    From Don-isewman-A slight change in my sewing room

    I thought about this in my head, over and over. And finally made this change. My rulers, I used, were under a shelf, with a fluroscent light. The rulers sat back under that shelf. I had to always reach under that shelf, and put the rulers back. Under that shelf. You can see what I did. My rulers sat in a ruler stand. And I started another quilt top, also. I wanted to post 2 of the blocks, I've made. TAKECARE everyone. DonName:  001.JPG

    You do have a lot of rulers.

    Plese show us the finished quilt.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I love your quilt blocks Don. This is a ruler stand my DH has made for a few friends.

    Smart move for the rulers and the start of your new quilt is awesome! Anxious to see this one grow.

    Good idea for the rulers, seems they are either hard to get to or always in the way.
    Your blocks are beautiful and I know the quilt will be too.

    You can never have too many rulers when you are a quilter I say. I like what you did with them, and I love the pattern of this new quilt Don. Can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for sharing. Mary.
