The cream fabric which I made a hash of cutting yesterday was supposed to be 6" wide in order to be starched and cut into 6" squares, then into triangles.
Because I am also using the cream fabric for the skinny stop border, and I had already decided to make this as a 2" finished border (rather than Sue's suggested 1" finished) this reather neatly means that my 5" wide mistake strip will come in very handy for when I'm cutting 2 1/2 " strips. Hurrah!
This evening I have VERY CAREFULLY sewn the triangles onto the nine patch blocks...
...and now I have the nerve-racking job of trimming the blocks to square them up.
But not this evening - my hour and a half concentration period is more than up, and I'll need to come at this one fresh!
Happy Tulips - This pattern is making the rounds of blogland. Fabri-Quilt has the pattern on their blog, Inspired by Fabric, and it looks great in all of the versions...
