Baby quilt for my niece

September 15, 2008

One of my summer projects almost finished.  Just need to decide on how I want to machine quilt it.  I am thinking of trying out the new bamboo batting.  Has anyone tried it yet? The bias rectangles gave me some grief and I had to go out and buy new fabric because I was not happy with the results.  On a trip to Shakespeare I found a birangle ruler that made the job go a lot easier.  Now I’m looking for a way to make the bias rectangles with no seam in the middle to eliminate some of the bulk.  Some research and I have found that Elanore Burns has a ruler that allows you to make a triangle in the middle and taking a rectangle and cutting it from one corner kitty corner to the other.  When put it together you can trim up the block to the size you need.  I can’t believe I’m thinking of needing another ruler, but I have fabric to make this same pattern in a queen size!

I hope it's a boy!

I hope it
