there was a reason I couldn't find it

When I first discovered Quiltville a couple of years ago, I bought the two rulers Bonnie recommended. I knew one was the Easy Angle and, looking back, I assumed that the other one was the Companion Angle. That was the one she talked about when the clues for Roll Roll Cotton Boll came out.

Turns out, she also recommended the Easy Square Jr. and now that I look at the picture of that one, I'm pretty sure it the second one I bought when I bought my Easy Angle.

No wonder I couldn't find a ruler I never bought in the first place! (And no, I can't find the Easy Square Jr., either. But I'm not looking for that one, so it doesn't count.)

Now that I actually own the ruler I need, I've started cutting pieces.

Thanks for the advice on how to make this work without the special ruler. I knew I could do it, but trying to find that ruler was driving me nuts. And I really like that I can cut the pieces out of 1 1/2" strips. Whatever black and neutral strips I don't wind up using for this project will go into my pineapple quilt, whenever I start that.

I love my companion angle ruler....I didn't know about it until Bonnie talked about it. I hope to get some sewing done on my OB mystery today.

I am thinking of Orca Bay as well - somehow there is always enough fabric to be found... Especially in the small sizes for Bonnie's mysteries. Have to go hunt down my rulers.

"One of these days" I will do a Bonnie Hunter quilt, but I just have too much going on right now. Geesh, they sound like fun and heaven knows I have the fabric for it. The next time Joann's has rulers 50% off - I'm getting those two rulers. Hope you didn't spend too much time looking for the one you didn't have!!

I've been faithful to Bonnie since I found her in 2007. What a motivation and educator she is!!!!

That's QUITE the stash report! And I looked back at your Baby quilt binge; Woooweee! Quite the accomplishments!
