In between working on the BOM for Marcus Fabrics, I've been working on Betsy's Blessing. I still haven't decided how big or small I'm going to make this cutie.
You have to make a lot of strip sets, and half-square triangles for this little block.
I have a basket full of parts and pieces to make another 20 or so blocks.
You will begin by cutting the following to make the sashing units.
Cut a strip of yellow that measures 5" x width of fabric. Then subcut it into 1-1/2" sections.
Cut a strip of red that measure 1" x width of fabric. Then subcut it into 1" squares
Draw a line on each one of the squares from corner to corner. This is your stitching line.
Stitch directly on the line.
Trim the corners off 1/4" from the line.
Click HERE for the link to the first tutorial to make the blocks. They are easy blocks to make, and you can use up a lot of scraps in the making. I am only pulling fabric from my stash of Betsy Chutchian designs. They all work so well together.
I don't know what I was thinking, but I decided to migrate the bookkeeping for my business to the online version of Quick Books on January 1st. I've been using the same software for 10 years. You know that phrase about teaching an old dog new tricks? Well, I'm not sure that it applies to this old dog. I've been glued to my office chair for hours at a time. I think I've finally got it figured out, and actually like the power of the new system. The only problem is......when I loose my Internet connection, I'm up a creek without my accounting paddle.
On another note, I called our health care provider, and now we have an appointment to get the first installment of the vaccine. I am so excited to get this process started in the next couple of weeks. When I called, I was on hold for 2 hours and 10 minutes.....it was worth the wait even though I had to listen to the recorded message about 1,000 times.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Since everyday seems the same here in the mountains, everyday is the weekend.
