This is a great variation on the 54/40 Fight or Flight block that Valerie is so keen on.
In this workshop, Valerie explains how to adapt the commercial pattern to use the Tri-Recs ruler. She feels this makes for greater accuracy prior to sewing.
She also guides you through a couple of other tips particularly when strip piecing to help you achieve accurate patchwork; if you don’t end up with an accurate 1″ band in the centre of your strips – you may like to check out the workshop video we have on how to achieve this – just click here.
Valerie created her quilt with fewer fabrics than Stephanie – but I’m sure she won’t mind!
There is also a suggestion right at the end from Valerie about making a trial block. She also shows you the reasons why. This is a great tip too if you are working from instructions in a magazine as any cutting errors won’t be listed in that edition!!!
