To learn the story of the Ukraine-quilts click here.
For the next Ukraine-quilt I used a pattern by Bonnie Hunter, My Blue heaven.
I totally screwed up.
I thought I knew how to use the Easy Angle Ruler. And of course I can make Quarter Square Triangles and Flying Geese too.
I can. But I had made all these blocks of one or two fabrics, never from single cut scraps.
I made a test-block with HST and the Easy Angle. That worked well, no trimming necessary. So I trusted one of my other rulers and made all the QST. Only after I finished all the center-squares I realized that they were too small. (Bonnie uses the Companion Angle, I ordered one this afternoon).
I could fix everything a bit during making the Flying Geese, but the overall result are seams that don't deserve the name seams. They are all wonky and the seam-allowance is sometimes 1/32 inch. The quilt-police should never see this one!
And the top is not very scrappy either. I thought I had enough variety of green fabric, but obviously I don't. I'm not sure I will ever have enough scraps to make a big scrap-quilt. Maybe it's not in me and I have to plan my quilts. Not all of one fabric, but planned different fabrics instead of totally scrappy.
But if I look at this quilt from far, it doesn't look that bad!
I will try the pattern again as soon as I got the ruler.
