It was such a comfort to know that I am not the only one who struggles with fabric measurements. But after reading Beverly's comment and printing out her list, I feel like I've been set free. I should have asked you all before, but I was a bit embarrassed. With conversions in hand, I remeasured my fabric and labeled it. Then I made up a little fabric chart and started cutting.
Needless to say, things went much smoother and I didn't have to wonder if I was cutting up the wrong fabric. Knowledge is a wonderful thing! I learned a valuable lesson too, just ask. I don't think I'll be working in a fabric store anytime soon though, who knows what I'd cut for a customer!
With too many fresh blueberries on hand I decided to start the day with blueberry pancakes. My daughter had a good buddy sleep over so they really enjoyed the overabundance of fruit.
I'm dropping off my sewing machine to be serviced today. I feel like I'm dropping off my child at Kindergarten with all my separation anxiety. It's been running so slow that soon enough it will be faster to hand-sew (ugh!). Hopefully I'll get alot of fabric cut today. Have a wonderful day!
So glad you asked. I went back and read Beverly's comment. Great info!ReplyDelete
Your pancakes look delicious. :o) I still have blueberries in my freezer. hmm. Maybe pancakes for dinner? :o)ReplyDelete
I have yet to cut anything in 1/8s. Sadly I stay away from those patterns because of not knowing how. :o)
Have a wonderful day!!

Can't wait to see the quilt as it progresses along. Glad someone helped you out with the measurements. The pancakes look so yummy good. I made BB muffins! So good with a sugar lemon glaze on top!ReplyDelete

O.K.- So, it's not an old saying. I just made it up. Hee hee
Anyway...I too, really need to take mine somewhere to be cleaned. It produced a lint ball the size of a watermelon yesterday!
