Recently, I attended a lecture and trunk show at Delphine’s quilt shop in Gaylord, Michigan. The speaker was Jodi Barrows who invented the Square-in-a-Square ruler and who has written many books about using the ruler.
To use the ruler to make many of the basic quilt piecing shapes, you cut strips of fabric to sew onto a center shape, usually a square or a diamond, and then use the tool to trim. I used light blue batik fabric as the strip and dark navy batik for a diamond shaped center.
The finished measurements are 27 1/2 by 33 3/4 inch. Despite the resulting small size of some of the pieces, the ruler made it possible without too much trouble.
I intend to use these lovely Lava thread by Superior to quilt it.
I will post a picture of the quilting when complete.
