The Importance of Being Accurate from Life in the Scrapatch


Nine Patch Tracks
12" Block, Finished
Jelly Roll Friendly


Yesterday a new  quilting friend in an online sewing group was struggling 
with the math and the 1/4" seam allowance
while making a 12.5" block unfinished.

It started a discussion in the group and
sent me to my machine
to illustrate my comments.
I am a hands on person
so I designed this simple block.



Start with 2.5" scrap strips

The question was how to make a block from jelly roll strips 
and what size would the units be after sewing.

It could be called a Nine Patch ...

'It' and the Dare to Doodle from La Bella Colori

Yea, I have seen the blogs, looked over the tutorials and read the books (oh so many books) that say "Get a dry erase board and doodle. It will help you to learn good eye hand coordination and improve your quilting skills." I ignored that advice. I made excuses like "its not really like actually quilting", "I am not good at drawing things", and "it can't possibly help me, its just silly".

When I arrived ...
