Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Design Wall M…Tuesday!

More scrappiness going on here.  Yesterday during the #Presidents Day Sew In, I pulled some backing yardage and scraps to make a couple of small donation quilts.  (And no, there’s no visible difference in my string bins.  Sigh.)

I see one block out of place, do you?  See any others?


These are 7.5″ blocks, and I don’t have a 7.5″ ruler.  I do have this nifty Creative Grids Squaring Up and Fussy Cutting Ruler.  I went online to see how to use it, and also found out that I have the prehistoric version.  The new ones are printed with a bar code to view on your phone and go directly to the YouTube instructions.  Huh.


This turned out not to be the tool I wanted for trimming 54 blocks, so I used a little tape on my 9.5″ ruler to make my own, and they trimmed up pretty quickly.

Heading back up to turn that block…

  1. I see one block, too. Third row down, fourth one over. They look great! I really like the light colors.

  2. I love the scrappy quilt. It is an an interesting group of fabrics. It makes they eye move around quite a bit.
