12 single girl sewing.


Well I didn't find any template plastic last week but what I did find instead worked perfectly for making my templates!
Plastic dividers that you normally put inside of binders!  It's thick, clear plastic that is easy to draw on (I used a Sharpie) and cut out, and the best part is that you get 8 sheets in one package.  I spent $3.88 on this pack and there were other options that were cheaper, although not as thick.
I spent a night tracing and cutting while watching TV and it was much less painful than I expected.  Last night I cut two of each fabric (I am planning on switching up the order of the fabrics to add all 36 into my final quilt).
 The actual sewing part went really quickly.  I sewed all 8 quarter rings...
and I've started sewing them to my background fabric.  I hope to share the finished block in the next day or two!
