One new snuggle....

coming right up.  I've taken the last one that I made to the quilters and have since cut the fabrics for this new snuggle, marked and sewn the light and dark fabrics together to make half square triangle blocks.

Here's a small sampling of the blocks.  There will also be greens added to this pile soon.
And this will be the only picture I'll post about this snuggle because I don't want to take the chance that my granddaughter will see it before Christmas.





However I do want to tell you about a new gadget I have that makes squaring up small blocks so easy.   This will help you trim a block from 1½" up to 6½".   It's a June Taylor cutter.   I have her large one that cuts strips every half inch and I love it.  So when I remembered that I had this one I dug it out of the drawer and put it to work.  Perfect squared 6½" blocks every time.
Line it up on the square and cut each side.  Turn the block to line up the other two sides and trim.  You can tell by this picture that I didn't have much to trim off but by taking this extra step it sure makes a difference when sewing blocks together.

I'm heading over to Judy's blog to link to her Design Wall Monday.  Come join us.  
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda
