LaDonna:
I couldn't even imagine trimming the hst without my Blok-Loc!  It "locks" onto the diagonal seam so no slipping!

LaDonna, I saw the Blok-Loc demonstrated at the Sewing and Quilting Expo in Mpls, but I didn't buy it and I'm kicking myself now!

It's a great tool!  I"ve got my HST blocks pressed and ready to trim and my bloc loc is at the ready!

I meant to say, mystery quilt #8 group.  

It has been a long day.   We had epic powder on the last day of the season, so I skied my legs off.  Both kids and spouses and grands have been underfoot all day.   SIL#2 tried to do in Sam.  After he skied off piste all day chasing wil,  SIL took him for a 2 hour snowshoeing trek.   They came back winded, but smiling from ear to ear.   SIL#1 works in the area,  he had to deal with naked employees in the stairwell.   We didn't that from him, he doesn't discuss these things,  but we talked to some of the other guys that work with him. They told us it's been a rough couple of days for him.    The employees go nuts the last week or so of ski season.    What's he going to do? Fire them?   They are all getting laid off tomorrow, so I guess they have nothing to lose.  

Last night around midnight there was a guy jumping up and down outside in the snow in his swimming suit, waving his arms trying to get my attention.   I cracked our door open and asked what he needed.  Of course, he was drunk, he and 6 of his friends, after a loooong drawn out story, he asked if they could come through our room because they were locked out.   The guy who let them into the pool area, evidently shouldn't have and if they called security, that guy would get fired.   I told them that since the HR director was sleeping here, I didn't think they wanted to wake him up.   He would fire the lot of them.  They were obviously employees that were poaching here at the lodge, and were now about to get caught whatever they did.    Too funny.  This woke Sam up, he looked out the window to see what the commotion was about.  He was enjoying the view, because the female contingent in the group were topless.   

Daughter number 2 and DSO, and Dd#1 are both gone,  the kids and SIL left here are tuckered, and so is Sam.  They've been asleep since 8.   I'm enjoying some quiet time and correcting all my mistakes here.

I like your colors Angele, I think we'll have twin quilts!

I finished step 4 and now I'm looking at border fabrics altho I probably won't be able to decide until the final step between the geometric and the floral.

I use Quilt in a Day Triangle Square Up Ruler. You trim you squares before opening them.  It is so easy to use - line up your stitching line with the size square you need and trim. It works perfect every time.

Ok I ordered this one too.  If I like it better than the others ones which were much more expensive.  I will sell the other ones on Ebay..  The only thing, is I have already pressed mine.

Oh for pity sakes!!!! I have one of those. Last night I started the HST but only got 66 of them done. I'll do the rest of them with the ruler. Thanks for posting Sharon. You've saved me tons of time.

I ran to one of the LQS today to see if they had the Bloc-Loc tool.  She didn't, but she demo-ed this Quilt-in-a-Day Triangle Square Up Ruler and convinced me that it would work as well as the Bloc Loc at a better price.  I haven't pressed my squares yet otherwise I might not have bought this.  I had to draw a line on the tool for a 2-inch square since it is marked for other sizes.  Is that what you do?

I stopped in at our local store on the way home and they had no idea what I was talking about.  There is one other store in town that I will try tomorrow.  I almost bought the locking one a few years ago but was not doing much hst at the time and figured to save the money.  I had not heard of the quilt in a day one.
