Playing with Wedge Rulers
Updated: Apr 26, 2021
It’s been a crazy, busy week here but just want to pop in and share an apron design I made using some new and very large wedge rulers from Quint Measuring Systems, Inc. It’s hard to tell in the photo but the skirt is so cute and swishy when worn. Since I’m a huge lover of all dotted fabrics, this black and white became the perfect choice when combined with the beautiful large scale floral print. It’s super simple and sews up fairly quickly.
Dots and stripes on the backside make this a reversible design. Two in one . . . not bad.
Ok, just one more shot since I couldn’t resist having the adorable Jamie Hirano of Wooden Gate Quilts model the finished product. Love the look on you, Jamie!
Here’s a sneak peek at another wedge project I am working on. Any guesses on what it will be? It was inspired by our new Making Waves quilt pattern. It will be something that can be used along with the quilt. If all goes well, I’ll reveal the completed (not going to tell you) in my next post.
Hmmm, wonder what this will be?
It’s been fun making these easy projects but I’m so anxious to design and make a new quilt. Feel like it’s been way too long. I’ve just not been inspired, until this week when I came across this gorgeous print by M&S Textiles Australia. Yes, it is one piece, NOT pieced. Circles and stripes in jewel tones, oh my! I can hardly wait to get started. I’ll be away teaching at Empty Spools Seminars at Asilomar next week and hope to find a few minutes in the evening to play and work out some new designs. Fingers crossed.
I love EVERYTHING about this fabric!!
That’s it for today. Hope wherever you live, you are staying warm and cozy. It’s such a perfect time to be inside working on projects. Take advantage.
Until next time, keep your eyes open for inspiration, it’s everywhere.
