I've been telling you how I have met (or corresponded) with my fellow blog hosts. I met Denise at Quilt Market one year. We started talking and became instant friends. She is always so nice. She invited me to come to teach and lecture at her shop, Quilter's Window in New Hampton, IA. It's about a 4 hour drive from where I live. I enjoy visiting Denise, her shop and her customers and have returned every year for the past several years. I love to visit Denise and she is such a great host. I get to stay at her house with her family and her wonderful dog, Rocky. Rocky and I have become great friends over the years and he's always happy to see me when I visit and of course the feeling is mutual. Here are Denise and I on my last visit. I will be going to back to New Hampton in November for a retreat, so if you are able to come, please do!
A while back I had promised to give you another use for the Fit to be Quarter ruler. Here it is:
First, start with 2 squares and 2 rectangles (sizes included in the instructions). Sew them together and press towards the squares.
Rotate one and sew them together.
On the back, snip the center of the middle seam and press one side up and one side down towards the squares.
Again, on the back of this piece, draw a diagonal line using a 45 degree angle or your Fit to be Quarter ruler. Make sure that the line goes right through the seam. Rotate the piece and draw another line on the other side.
Place the larger rectangle, right sides together on the piece that you just made. Again, sizes are included in the ruler instructions. Sew on the lines.
Cut a 1/4" in from the lines. There will be a small scrap inbetween your cut lines.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it is posted on my website.
One more thing, Lissa Alexander from Moda, is blogging about my ruler as well. Make sure you check it out!
