You know it's a pretty good day when you sit down to sew and you find little sticky notes posted in your studio. I kind of like having my man around. Who knows maybe I will finally even learn a little calculus as I listen to him teach and record lessons for his students.
For block 21 I chose Broken Sugar Bowl. What a name.
My sugar bowl is made of crystal and definitely not broken. I have not worked much with green so decided it would be good to add some into this scrappy quilt.
I love trees, so naturally decided green and brown go together.
The only fussy thing about this block is working with those small squares to make the 4-patch units. Once again I highly recommend starch. After making them I checked them all for the 2 1/2" measurement needed. They needed just a touch of trimming to get squared up properly. Notice that I lined up the 1 1/4" lines on my ruler with the seam lines of the block. This assures a truly squared up block.
The rest of the block is pretty straight forward. Do watch the direction of the 4-patches and the Half-square Triangles.
I do want to mention also that if the seam in your 4-patch units is bulky in the center you can fan the seam. The top 4-patch is pressed regularly. The bottom one has the seam fanned. It just is a trick that can help achieve a flatter block.
So that's it...three weeks at home. So far so good.
