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
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!
