I finished my block for the Block Swap Adventure Bee. Samantha said she was up for any block in soft pinks, blues and ivory. There was a little bit of pressure on as I was her first swap partner and in a sense would be setting the tone for the following blocks. I looked at my more traditional fabrics as I notcied when I stalked her block she was more tradional with her fabrics. Then I thought wait...she had not dislikes...and part of this swap is about expressing ourselves.
So I picked a Kaffe Fasset, Moda Sugar Pop, a couple others from my stash with an ivory. Then I pulled out my iphone so I could use this great app
Quick and Easy Quilt block tool is $3.99 and one of the most used apps on my phone! it has over 100 blocks listed in its index
But what I really like is it shows you how to make the blocks in different sizes, giving quick cutting directions for the segments of the blocks. I love this for when Im designing I can look up picecs that fit my design and see the measurements to quick cut them.
I highly reccomend this tool. I choose to do the Dutchman's puzzle for Samantha.
I love flying geese and there isnt any waste with this cutting method.
I hope she likes it!
