I mentioned before that I square up the blocks after 2-3 pieces are added to each side. I thought maybe you would want to see why I do that. Many of the strips are really crooked so after adding a couple the edge gets really wavy. I always make sure the strip I'm adding on the edge is a little wider when I know I am ready to trim.
I got a new die for my Studio cutter. It is the Blazing Star and it has 3 sets of triangles, all different angles. I knew I would never do this one with templates so it was the die or not at all. I made a test block to see if it works out and to test my pressing sequence. I wasn't paying attention though because the darkest points were supposed to be in the center and the medium tone ones in the background.
I'm going to sew the borders on the spiral quilt and sew the blocks of the pinwheel quilt together today while I have a couple sewing friends over. Then I'll link up with the Fractured Quilt Along.
