Another Setting Idea

Posted by on January 2, 2016 in block lotto community | Comments Off on Another Setting Idea

I am still catching up with finishing up last month’s lotto (and trying to climb out of this funk I’ve been in over the holidays), but in the meantime, I wanted to share this quilt-in-progress from Aunt Marti’s blog.  Look familiar?


Aunt Marti’s Scrappy Birds in the Air

These blocks have the opposite light/dark fabric placement than ours with a wider range of colors–maybe inspiration for making your own quilt? I am considering making a few of these blocks each month as part of the Rainbow Scraps challenge.

Her blog post (linked on her name above) includes a tutorial for cutting the setting square triangles using a special ruler.

A few years ago, on Sophie Junction, I blogged about the setting triangle math to use to figure out what size those pieces need to be (if you aren’t working from a pattern that tells you). You can find that post here.

If you are unfamiliar with Aunt Marti’s blog and have some quilts-in-progress and are looking for some motivation to get them done, you might also want to check out her UFO Challenge (details for 2016 are at the bottom of the linked post).
