Last weeks DW blunder has been fixed. Well as much as it's going to be fixed. The center daisy will be the oddball. The design plan was for all the blocks to look like the center one but due to my lack of paying attention to detail... the plan changed. I'm not complaining, that's just part of my designing process. Starting with a idea, then building upon it. Okay so that's a line of bull, but it sounded good. It's really me being stubborn and not wanting to take apart another block and not wanting to add more UH-OH units to the collection I already have.
If you've been following me for awhile you know that I'm a huge fan of white backgrounds. While putting the blocks on the wall it struck me that there's a lot of white space. Great for showing off quilting, but it just didn't set right with me this time. My first thought was to trim away some of the block. That would mean adding more to the scrap bin, so that option was quickly tossed aside. Option B was to add more color, thus using up some scraps. After tossing around a few ideas for a day or two I decided more dresdens. Small 5" dresdens. My dresden ruler doesn't go that small. What I wanted was a dresden blade that had just enough room to press the quarter inch to the middle. The store bought ruler I have only goes to 1/2". So I searched the internet for a free template with no luck. With a little help from EQ7 I printed a template, glued it to a piece of plexiglass, scored it, snapped it, and sanded the rough spots. TA DA! Now cutting the small pieces will go so much faster. Did you see the little dresdens in the picture above?
Just a quick question for bloggers. I've been tagged for the Blog Hop Around the World. I need to tag 3 more bloggers to join in the hop. My search for bloggers has hit a brick wall. Would you like to be tagged? This just means writing a blog post. The hop is basically a way to meet new to you bloggers or find out more info on your favorite bloggers. If you like to join in the fun leave me a comment on this post and I'll send you the blog hop information.
