Cutting and Cutting and Cutting!
1200 pieces cut! This took a long time, as you might imagine. When you make On Ringo Lake (or any Bonnie Hunter quilt) twice, it take so many little pieces!
Hubby saw all these little piles of ten on the dining table and said, "So now you're ready to sew?"
Nope. If you're following along with the clues, you know that now I have to mark a diagonal line on the back side of the 800 squares. He shook his head. "You've got more patience than I have," he said. Well, he has a different kind of patience - the kind of patience it take to hit thousands of golf balls, trying to tweak his grip, his stance, and whatever else he might be able to tweak in order to hit more accurately or further.
So last night I pulled out a sandpaper surface (to help grip the fabric), a ruler, and a mechanical pencil to begin the marking process. I got a good start. Actually I got 400 squares marked - halfway there! Today there will be lots of football to watch while I draw more of these lines. I doubt I do any sewing yet, but I'll be ready soon.
Enjoy your day!
