I have been looking for an inch ruler for some time now. Unfortunatelly all the quilt shops were closed for the long weekend! Sooo ... off I went to the "Stoffenspektakel - Spectacle of fabrics" in Malines and to my big surprise there were two well stocked quilt shops as well (went five years ago for the first - and last - time because there was nothing to my liking).
Drafting the sashings with my new inch ruler
Having the right equipment meant that I could at last begin with sewing together all the Dear Jane blocks that I already made. I found a good blog post on how to sew the sashings at Aunt Reen's place. Using her instructions I was able to avoid those - possible - teeny tiny square blocks between each "cross" ;-).
The sashing fabric is a little bit different - but from the same series - as the background of the blocks.
I still have to put 7 blocks on it.
Can you imagine a better place than "patching" in your garden? I can't ...
And to finish it off ... a couple of the pictures I've taken last week. I think it's obvious that we like purple a lot! ;-)
Have a nice week!
