trimming

Color Wheel Charm Swap HSTs
it took me no time at all to stitch up my color wheel charms. the holdup is trimming. i hate trimming. i bought a new ruler that i don't much care for. it's supposed to sharpen your rotary cutter as you use it but i'm pretty sure it dulls blades faster instead. this is the only small square ruler i have so for now i'm sticking with it. i bought the same type of ruler to replace the 12.5" square that helped to nearly lop my finger off. and i already ripped off the packaging so it's too late to return it. i hate that.

i still have a scar, btw. just in case you were wondering.

  1. That's going to look really awesome! I'm still thinking about what to do with my charms. I was wondering if the rulers could possibly work, thanks for a heads up. I'm so sorry you almost lost a finger in a quilting accident. I would still try and return them and tell them it doesn't work, how would you even know without taking the packaging off. I hope your having a Merry Christmas!

  2. I hadn't heard of that ruler, but it's good to know I shouldn't waste my money. Hopefully, you can return it without any problems. Your HSTs look great! I'm eager to see this quilt top when you finish.

  3. i have wondered about that ruler and have contemplated buying one...  probably won't now.  i love the colors of your blocks.  trimming does suck and it takes so long.
