Drafting a quilt block
You never know when you will need to know how to draft a quilt block. Nadine Ruggles of Dreamweaver Quilts has a podcast and in the latest one she talked about drafting quilt blocks. What a coincidence because today I had to draft a hexagon at work. Yes, at work. My boss was sculpting the soccer ball for his newest piece. What do you see in the pattern? Almost a grandmother's flower garden! The difference is the center: it is a pentagon. I drafted both shapes for him so he could trace around it into the clay. Happy, happy.
