This month’s Schnibble, Hook, was quite a challenge with all the bias edged triangles to keep from stretching!
I used 2 charm packs from an older Moda collection called “Urban Couture”.
And I was soooo happy to find enough of the green fabric from the collection on Etsy to buy for the background!!
I really love it when Carrie uses the leftover fabric bits for a scrappy pieced border!!
I found an even older piece of floral in my stash for the backing!! I named it “Stars in the Meadow”!
I had a triangle ruler to use for cutting out the star spokes, but it was a much larger ruler than was needed. So, I was about to scour my notions drawer to find that thin bright neon removable tape to mark the 3 1/4” line on the ruler, when I spied the thick dimensional purple tape stuck on the side of my machine that I occasionally use to mark the seam allowance line on the machine foot plate.
It was actually perfect to use on the 3 1/4” line on the back of my triangle ruler, as being thicker than the tape, it provided a ledge for the edge of the strip set to bump up against!!
Voila!! A new use for something I already had!! Don’t ya just LOVE that when it happens??
I used the amazing Waterloque app on my iPhone to turn a few more pix into lovely watercolored art!!
Sigh… outside it is again snowing! Only to get a few inches this time they say… HOPE SO!!!
Guess what Yoginess is doing as I post this???
