Using the ruler and post it notes worked great!
All I had to do was line the ruler up with the point and edge and transfer the marks. Probably not perfectly accurate, but close enough for me.
In the pic below, can you spot the problem I had? Don't scroll right past, try to figure it out.
Answer? I failed to account for the binding as I started this feather. I can't believe I forgot this!
Then I found I was having trouble moving my quilt. Rookie mistake again. Instead of puddling the quilt in a series of peaks and valleys, I had tossed the quilt up upon itself and was sliding, or trying to slide the whole thing.
Below is a pic of the quilt positioned much better. The peaks and valleys act as a hinge, allowing the part of the quilt I'm working on to move, but keeping the bulk fairly stationary which means moving less weight.
The second triangle was done with the same ruler work, but the fills between were much more swirly and feathered too.
Doing the whole quilt as a sampler has been a lot of fun as I choose different designs and rulers.
There's still time to link up in the ruler work link party! Don't be a party pooper. Share and visit.
Tomorrow starts a new Craftsy promotion and I'm pretty excited about it. It's something totally different for National Craft Month which will impact a good cause. Come back and here all about it.
