Truing Up Quilt Blocks That Are Too Small (tutorial)

edit….. I’m sorry, but Daily Stitches is no longer online. 

 

I have found another great blog.  Daily Stitches is a new quilting, stitching, knitting.Worty's Arch Quilt..the needle arts… blog by Joanne W.  And such talent!  This is one of my favorites of her quilts.  If you click on the pic it will take you to her Flickr site where you can see it in detail…lovely. 

Since I have been working on my first quilt ever, I found her tutorial re: truing up quilt blocks that came out too small very inspiring.  Nothing drags down my desire to finish something faster than finding that I screwed up about 10 hours ago in the first layer and thinking that I will have to go back and undo..redo…put back together and practically start over.  This was the answer for me..  It’s an article that was written for a quilting magazine that she is now sharing with us for free.  It’s called Sashing Undersized Blocks  and is in pdf. format.  It’s great… Have a look…

    Yikes, I need to do some serious blogging today–first of all, to tell everyone that the quilt pictured in this post is from a pattern by the very talented Teri Austin. http://www.esteritaaustin.com

    I believe it is a street scene from Siena where she was lucky enough to study for a while. She does a Tuscan quilt art retreat every year, sounds heavenly.
