    St Pat's Day Squedge Project

    Here is my St. Pat's squedge table topper.

    Great pattern...the directions say to press as you choose. The Valentine's version was pressed to one side or the other. This time I pressed all the seams open. I think this made for a much neater looking item.

    This was fun to make. The only fabric I purchase new was has the black background. All the other fabrics and the batting were left over from a project making 10 aprons on commission (never doing that again).

    This is a gift for my son and his lovely bride.

    I had never heard of Squedge. I had to google to find out about it. I like making table toppers for the holidays or using monthly. This one will have to go on my to do list. Looks fun.

    I googled Squedge and came up with lots of options. The free pattern is at: www.phillipsfiberart.com. There is a video and the free pattern. Looks like an interesting site.

    Beautiful. Don't want to pay that price for the ruler. I have a Ten Degree Ruler from Phillips Fiber Art mark with a 60 degree angle on it. I will try that first.

    Cute as can be. Is there anywhere in the U.S. that the squedge ruler can be purchased? I'm thinking that maybe it wouldn't be so expensive if it were purchased here.

    Phillips Fiber Arts is in Colorado.
    $13 + postage...three free patterns already and more to come...I've paid $10 for a pattern.
    With the free patterns that makes the tool nominal.

    Super cute table topper. I got the squedge ruler when they had free shipping a month or so ago. I loved the free patterns last year they did for the 12 degree ruler that I didn't want to miss out making new fun stuff with the squedge. I have been so busy but need to get the ruler out and make a table topper. I've got some great red white & blue fabrics that would be great for 4th of July.

    I wanted control over the INNER edges of at least two of the inner 'edges'. I created two horizontal lines on the squedge with tape where the edges of a couple of the strips are sewn. That way each time I line up the squedge I can check the angles between the upper and lower edges.

    I found that with my horizontal lines I can check how well I pressed my strips and get better angles.

    See the photo below. (Pardon the ugly spots leftover from using duct tape on the back in the past!)
