Fun One to Make

We are at week 6 of the Prim and Proper Sew Along. This week's blocks were so fun to make!

These blocks were inspired by Cross Stitch. They will add so much to the quilt. I really enjoyed making these blocks and loved using all the different Shabby Fabric colors.

These blocks were super easy to make, you basically make a variation of a 9 patch and trim it down.

You will need a 3 1/2 inch ruler to trim the blocks down. Of all the different rulers I own, of course, I didn't have that size. I happened to mention to my husband that I didn't have the size ruler I needed and he came home from work that day with a 3 1/2" template that he made for me to use. How sweet is that! Of course, it worked but I didn't have the heart to tell him I already ordered a ruler.

Lori Holt's Cute Cuts ruler was just the tool I needed to get that perfect block every time.

I think I will be investing in several other sizes of these rulers, they have just the perfect markings to line up a block to square up or resize.

I hope you are sewing along and using the hashtag #primandporopersewalong so we can see your progress and be sure to stop by crosshatchquilts on Instagram today and enter the great giveaway sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.

Stay Safe and Sew On!
