    Fun and Done

    Here are a couple pix of my new Squedge lap quilt. I just finished it today and it was such fun! Its approximately 60" x 60" and has 'back to front' machine binding. Next I plan to make a Squedge bed runner. I'm lovin my new ruler! Hope you enjoy looking.

    Thanks. I bought my ruler on Ebay. There are several Squedge rulers and this one is the Squedge18. It makes 16" blocks. Watch out... its addictive! LOL

    oh, my, that looks like a math adventure to me. All those angles - I am glad you shared it with us - it is gorgeous and it looks difficult. Love the color combination as well. Great job.

    very pretty. Is squedge the name of the ruler you used or just a typo?

    No, its not a typo... A squedge is a square wedge. A wedge makes a circle, a squedge makes a square block.

    Thanks. Its not any more difficult than the wedges in a Dresden Plate block. No math at all. If you look closely at the last picture you will see one block is made up of 20 wedges and a center circle. When the blocks are set together they form the secondary and terciary patterns. (But it makes my non quilting friends think it is!) LOL
