I am so excited to be part of this blog hop with my fellow Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors. Now it is my turn and I'm going to fill you in on the V-Block tool plus some tools I use to enhance my pressing.
So to get started you just need to decide on what size finished unit you would like to make. The size strips to cut for each of the 11 possible finished sizes are listed on the slanted end of the tool. I picked a size and cut strips the correct width from 2 fabrics - a gold for the center triangle and a luscious green for the side triangles.

Today I am unveiling my new company logo. Check out the Home tab to see a cute bobcat with glasses - that's me - in front of a delectable mountain block representing Cat Den Mountain where I live. The logo was designed for me by Tammy at Gem Graphics in Keene, New Hampshire. I am in awe of her talent.
Having a new logo also meant it was time to redesign my website. Most of it is the same but the look is different. I hope you can find what you are looking for when you visit. The new look will launch later today with the posting of the July installment of the CQG 2019 BOM. My next task is to reformat my patterns. I will slowly be bringing the new versions of them online. So far only "Alternate Ways" has gotten the face lift. since one is now done, the rest should be easier to bring up to speed. My patterns will still be available in both paper and digital versions.
In other news, I now work for The Quilt Pattern Magazine. My role is behind the scenes formatting patterns for inclusion in the issues. That entails translating the designers' vision into the high-quality pattern for which TQPM is known. Using CorelDraw, I draft the diagrams to accompany the written instructions. It is a lot of work but also very enjoyable seeing a pattern come to life.
It is my goal to not be so much of a stranger. I'll try to keep you better informed about what is happening on the mountain. That may include some wildlife videos so stay tuned.
