Week 5 - March 15-21 - Sewing A Arcs - just keep sewing!!!! I've made some more progress this week, but not nearly as many as I need. I have a little over half of the As complete at this point.

Week 6 - March 22-28 - Sewing B Arcs - just keep going! We got this far, we can do it! See note above. 

Week 7 - March 29 - April 4 - Sewing B Arcs - This week was the last week of Arcs. I am only about 35% complete on the Bs, so I have quite a few left, but I am just going to keep going until I get there.

Week 8 - April 5 - April 11 - Using QW Wedding Ring Rulers - Cutting out backgrounds -- Asteroids and Melons. This week, we are going to be working on cutting out background....depending upon which quilt you are doing, you may be doing 4 patch asteroids (Princess Tiara or Cotton Candy), or X asteroids (Flowers for My Wedding Ring), or even the Bali Wedding Star. 

If you are working on Bali Wedding Star, you will make the CDS and CMS units as per the instructions, and use the templates to help you trim them up.

If you are making X backgrounds, you will stars by cutting 13 1/2 inch squares, and cut them on the diagonal twice.

Then, mix them around....

And sew back together.

Then place the ruler, matching up the center X markings, and cut on all 4 sides.

Remove the center and sew the "leftovers" into melons.

And trim them down.

Do the same with a plus setup for Princess Tiara, Art Deco, or a few others.

I have lots of these, as I often demo the rulers at shows....see, a whole pile of them in a couple different  stages....

So, my homework for this week is done!!!! Guess I will keep working on the As and Bs.Think I can catch up. (Don't hold your breath!)
