I posted another tutorial covering the construction of the corner blocks for A Ribbon Runs Through It. Those of you who have kits may want to work ahead, and make a few of these blocks for a change of pace.
After I make each component, I place it on the block layout sheet in the correct orientation. This sheet helps to eliminate errors.
Prior to cutting, I spray my fabric with Faultless Heavy Duty Spray Starch. It makes all the difference in the world. After I thoroughly soak the fabric with starch, I let it dry on this old drying rack above my bathtub. This old antique comes in very handy!
