these rocks don’t lose their shape. . .Cushion Cut

Shame that such a pretty cut gets such a bum-rap in the naming department – this is also the easiest of the three blocks so far – no y-seams! Β But really after the first two blocks, y-seams are a piece of cake now, eh? Β πŸ™‚

I’m really enjoying the ability to audition the fabric placement in EQ7. Β It takes the guess work out and is sooooo much fun. . .husband waiting to watch the next episode of ‘the Walking Dead’ but I need one more minute kind of fun πŸ™‚

Cushion Cut

I think my initial goal was to try a curvier cut this month, but I got drawn in by the fussy cutting possibility of this block – it just seemed perfect to showcase one of those girls who love their diamonds πŸ™‚

Or if you would like to go back to the Heart Shaped cut you can find that on The Crafty Planner’s blog here. Β If you have some time it would be well spent looking through Sandi’sΒ blog, she has some fun podcasts available for your listening pleasure.

I also managed to finish my ‘zoo’ purse, I needed something cross body, light and big enough for our passes, a couple o’bucks, car key, wipes and a pull up. . .so I made the 241-tote and added an adjustable strap, invisible snap, one back zipped pocket and since there was a little bit of fabric left over I made Sew Sweetness’ little change purse – done!

Zoo here we come πŸ™‚

ifΒ you’re zoo bound, a sewing fiend or just chilling – enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚
