Snowflake, Part One

I'm working on my Island Batik Ambassador project for August, using the beautiful blue Prairie Skies by Kathy Engle collection.

Along with this luscious cut of solid white Island Batik fabric.

This month's challenge utilizes a Deb Tucker Studio 180 ruler.  I received the Corner Pop ruler.

Ruler cutting involves a lot of rotary cutting, so I installed a new blade before I began.

 The Corner Pop ruler creates a perfect corner with less waste than the stitch and fold method.  You get two corners out of each corner square.  I tested it out by sewing just one corner first.  It was pretty easy to do!

 There's a chart that comes with the ruler that tells you what size squares to cut for the corners.  My squares needed to be 4-1/4", but I used my Accuquilt 4-1/2" square die cutter and that worked just as well, plus, it was super fast cutting!

 After sewing the corner triangle on, you line up the ruler to trim for a perfect block.

 I'm keeping my design simple by sewing some three corner blocks and some four corner blocks.

 Here's a few of them up on my design wall.

 My newest kitty, Sunrise is shaping up to be a pretty good quilting helper.

 Sewing borders on.

I finished the quilting yesterday.  Time to bind and do the final reveal.  Check back soon to see my Snowflake quilt.
