18.4 Card Trick Design WallAugust 15, 2011
Like an hour after uploading the episode, I went rummaging around my neutral fabrics.
Guess what I found? I found the background fabric that I needed for the card trick quilt I talked about in the episode!
First, the layout of the pieces that I already had available.
Actually the floor would be a good background for those alternate blocks, but I kinda need it to be ON the floor.
So I made the alternate blocks in the light brown background, estimating how large of squares I needed, boy I was just perfect on estimating this!
First I sewed the opposite triangles on, then I trimmed them down. (right in the pic, then left). Then I sewed the other two triangles down.
So here are the blocks on the ‘design wall’ – one border short, and I need a little more for the kicker border.
And I’m just going to do a 2 inch finished inner border (to match the 4 inch finished outer border). Of which I have a fat quarter, but really want the width of fabric size on this.
And yes, another smallish square quilt. I tend to make these a lot, it seems. I like how these colors seem way more fallish.
