The result is that I put a bit of a dent in my Bloom top. I was inspired to start it by seeing this cushion from Svetlana at sotak handmade. I never thought that I'd want to make something with peach! But then I became obsessed and needed to track down that peach painter's canvas. Which around here generally means ordering online and waiting at least 2 weeks. But it was my lucky weekend because coming back from Victoria I stopped in the Fabricland in Duncan, and they had a big selection of painter's canvas at 50% off! Not quite as amazing as the previous weekend's Victoria score of Amy Butler for 3.99/m, but still awesome!
He's away for 4 days at a conference so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get all the dresden rings done for this guy. Plus some quilting. And maybe actually blog on a regular basis!
I've got a question, though, that I was hoping I could get some help with. I'm looking for a 60 degree ruler. Anyone have one they love? I've done two quilts lately (hexy baby and patchwork prism) and while I love the look of those triangles, cutting them with a regular ruler isn't terribly accurate. So I want to invest in a 60 degree ruler, and, of course, I want the best one!
I looked at this one and while I like the size, the lines are really thick, making it hard to get an accurate measurement. Most of my rulers are by omnigrid so I'm used to all the lines being dashed. I wish they made a 60 degree ruler! Any suggestions? Should I just get over my fear of solid lines?
