As I was combing through my stash of quilting books, magazines and patterns, I ran across the pattern above and the ruler that goes with it.  "Great," I thought, here's another way to get rid of use up some more of my stash.

So I started sewing different strips of fabrics together.

Using the trusty ruler, I cut the above shape.

Now which design do I want to make???? This one...... hummmmm

Or this one...... yea, I'm thinking I really like this design better. So I'll need to do loads of sewing strips. So far I have 60 kite type shapes cut, all from my stash which is slowly decreasing... YEA!
I'll have to use tone-on-tones to fill in the edges but that will come later.

Wow!!!! That is really cool.

That block is really pretty. I'm curious as to how one, two, three blocks sew up together? Also, the name of the ruler? Thanks!

GORGEOUS!!!!!! I love those kites and the blocks they make.

Doniene said...

Wonderful!! What a great way to use up fabric and it's even geometric!!! But oh so artsy too!! LOL

I have a similar ruler (not the one you have) but haven't used it. I suppose I should pull it out and try?

Heidi said...

I totally love that block! I've seen those rulers around on internet, but I think I'll put this one on my quilting tools list!

Merilyn said...

What a great block, I love the darker colours you have used too, prefer the second block, this is going to be wonderful!!

Barb said...

That is a great way...but have you noticed that those scraps just keep breeding when the lights go out??

Gari said...

What a neat block you can make. I have seen a ruler like that but never knew what one could do with it. thanks.

I like your thinking: those Y-seams are pesky (though if I practiced them I supposed I would be less likely to avoide them). The string-pieced kites are the basis for Bonnie Hunter's "Virginia Bound" in her book Scraps & Shirttails, but your setting is quite different. Thanks for the inspiration!
