Quilting with Rulers on the Big Block Baby Quilt

Baby Abigail is smiling because her auntie is nearly done with her quilt. At least that's what I think she's saying.


I just had to do some ruler work and more detailed filler work on the solid triangle points. You can see in the picture below that I mark my corners when doing this work. Ninety degree corners are easier to estimate, but in triangle corners, I need a little help to know where to turn.


 I had originally decided to just do this triangle in the center of the four solid blue triangles, but I decided to have a little fun.

I used the 6 inch star from TopAnchor for the next one. I shot a video of some of this and will post in in the next couple of days.


I love how it turned out! The next one is getting a big letter 'A' in the center. I used a Bohin white mechanical pencil for marking on this dark blue.

I'm loving this big block baby quilt! So fast and easy to work up, though I did find I could use a bigger cutting ruler for some of these pieces. Have you done a big block quilt yet? Let me know in the comments. Feel free to share this post or the giveaway post itself!
