So are you still gazing at your gadgets, templates, and rulers and thinking “I should do something with that?” Because this year, I’m trying. This month, I chose another accucut die that I had not yet used–a 3 1/2 inch tumbler. I got a head start on it while working on my UFO for the month (the alligator quilt, which is not, and will not be done in February thank you).
Remember, my goal was to make 12.5 inch square blocks. Well tumblers aren’t square. However, they do make nice rows, so I made 4 rows of tumbler in red, white, and blue, and then whacked off (that’s a technical quilting term) the edgesto make a 12.5 inch square block.
So I call this month’s challenge a success, and add another 12.5 inch block to my pile to make into a quilt at the end of the year.
How did you do? Even if you didn’t take the challenge, are you using some of your rulers, gadgets, templates?
