    Starting of Deckade the Halls quilt.

    This is my start for the Deck-ade Halls quilt BOM. Thanks for looking. My three Gingerbread men are the same.

    It's cute!
    I just went to Google and did a search for the name of the pattern.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    My guild is doing it as a summer sew-along project. I just bought fabric yesterday so will start on it this week. I hope that is. Our first get together is this weekend and I hope to have more to share than just the fabric I had picked. I was hoping to doing it with figgy pudding but I didn't have enough fat quarters in my stash to make a dent in it. All my christmasy red and green fabic is all too much the same value to me, so I went and bought new except for 3 of the 10 fabrics.

    Your gingerbread men are very cute.

    I am watching this BOM. Have not start it yet. The measurement "7/8" I don't know where that is on my ruler. My ruler is the original NonSlip ruler from creative grids. It has the marking for 3/4' 1/2 & 1/4. Can someone tell me where the 7/8 marking is?

    Sew fine, it is exactly half-way between 3/4 and 1 inch!
    3/4 is 6/8 And 1 inch is 8/8
    7/8 is exactly between.

    Thanks so much. I have a lot of patterns that calls for this measurement, but never knew where it was on my ruler. I have marked it.

    Sewfine, You 'guesstimate' half way between 3/4 and 1". when it comes to HSTs, I go to the inch then trim the finished sub-block.
    Buddysmom, your excellent fabric choices really make these blocks sing.

    The 7/8" mark is the tiny mark just before the #. They are the tiny little lines between the other's. Does this make any sence??
