And because I’m a quilter, the object of my affection is a piece of clear plastic. I’m in the midst of designing a collection right now so sewing time is at a premium. While at my local shop, I picked up a “Lazy Angle Ruler”. It makes complex-looking blocks so quick and easy. I took some Ambrosia scraps and made sets of 4 (6-1/2″) squares, and then sewed them together to make 12-1/2″ blocks. They are addictive. I chose to make the finished blocks 12-1/2″ square, because then I can break it down into a 9-square and 16 square layout as well. But look at the possibilities with just a simple 2-piece 4 square block…
I tried a couple 3-piece 4 square blocks as well.
I hope to sew a few blocks each week so that, by early next year I have enough to make an Ambrosia Sampler Quilt. A simple, fun project. If you see one of these rulers, be sure to pick it up!
