Trade Winds

What a stunning wall hanging Deb Tucker’s “Trade Winds” pattern makes. I used richly colored batiks, and the Studio 180 tools to put this together.  The Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star ruler creates stars with all your those perfect points. The 4 inch and 6 inch were used in this quilt.

To make the border I used the V Block and Square2  tools. The V Block ruler makes 11 sizes.  I used the 2 inch for the border.  The ruler tells you the size to cut the units, and has markings to guide you to trim the unit down to a perfect 2 1/2 ” unfinished unit with 1/4″ above the point  for accurate piecing.

The Square2  blocks were also 2 inch size. The ruler make 6 different size units.There were 20 in the border so I chain pieced them to make them quickly.  They get trimmed down so they will be accurate in the end.

I need to finish the quilt with some Free Motion quilting and send in to Lynn’s Sewing for a class in Fall.  Can’t wait to teach it.
