xblock greens

This is the first quilt using the x-block - You make strata with 2 1/2 " strips, and use a special ruler to cut squares on an angle. One roll of strips, and assorted darker green scraps. For Children's Advocacy Center

finally finished Hunter's Star

I quilted petals in the stars in December or January on My Dream 15. Then I wanted to quarter-inch outline around the "arrowhead" shapes. I tried to stitch straight lines on my Dream 15 - wasn't happening. Nor could I stitch straight lines on my regular machine - too many turns. Finally I bought a ruler base for my Dream15. And finally, using the ruler to practice on, I finished a baby quilt. It is so easy! I LOVE using the ruler with my Dream15. It does slightly narrow the area available for quilting, and that's a consideration, but, I LOVE IT!
