Getting Started with Mr Fix-It

Well, here I go.
This blog is about quilting, and any other random events in my life.  I love to design, piece and longarm quilt.  Every aspect has it's own rewards.

Recently I designed a quilt for Katja's Quilt Shoppe using the Mr. Fix-It panel.   I started with the panel, .8 m. of the pegboard fabric, .6 m. of the hammer fabric and 1.25 m. of the border fabric.
I cut the six blocks apart.

I trimmed the blocks to 9 1/2", then sashed them with a 2" piece of the pegboard fabric.
I then made six 9 patch blocks from 4 1/2" squares of the hammer and pegboard fabric.  The twelve blocks were then pieced together alternating a panel block with the nine patches.  The border was then added by cutting the border fabric into 6 1/2" sections.  I applied the side borders first, then the top and bottom.

Next came a little quilting.

And here is the completed quilt!
