Designer BOM 2011 Block One

I fell in love with the Strawberry Fields Collection by Fig Tree as soon as I saw it. Then when I saw that the Fat Quarter Shop was using the collection for the 2011 Designers BOM I decided to give in and join in. Well the other day I noticed that I’d received 7 of the blocks and maybe it was time to get started.

There was a reason though that I hadn’t started. You see I don’t like the method for making the square in the square block that was used in the pattern. I have never had any luck getting my blocks perfect.

I know it doesn’t look too bad in the picture but it’s off when put under the ruler.

I recently tried and demonstrated a new to me ruler for a quilt group called the Square2 which I fell in love with

Deb Tucker’s Square2 I love this ruler! Deb has wonderful tutorials check out her tutorial for the Square Squared ruler

and here is the result, my first block is finished and it turned out perfectly.

Looking at the next block I see the Deb Tucker Trimmer will come in really handy!

    Wow! I hadn’t checked your blog in some time Wendy, because you hadn’t written much, and now I see you’re really on a roll. What cute quilts. You do such nice piecing. Deb Tucker is one of my favorite designers/teachers. I took a class from her at MQX several years ago and was introduced to her tools for making difficult blocks by making easy ones and trimming them. She rocks!
