Wordless Wednesday 347~ Broken Rose Stem Brings Home Cheer

From a broken stem on my Knock Out Rose Mr. G had planted.
Cut and brought to the kitchen table to enjoy.
Just happened to catch the morning sprinkles.

Quilt Shot Block 157~ Facets: Another Memory Quilt


Spring 2009 edition
Over my many years of looking at quilts,
I've seen this block multiple times
in other books and magazines.
3 flannel shirts, 2 dark, 1 light and 1 red PJ flannel pants
Cut in 2½ inch strips
Sewn end to end.
The red was cut into 2½ inch squares.
Strips stitched into one continuous strip set

Warning: Well worn flannel shirts will have warped weave,
so cutting on straight grain is very difficult.
One has to have a mind set not to worry about it too much.
Some tricks like using this Creative Grid ruler helps.

I didn't think it mattered where the red squares went, but it does.
On my light blue, it goes in upper right.
Then the opposite corner.
When you have leftover triangles,
its easier to stitch them together while attached
to make half square triangles.
Don't know if they will be used?
