Thinking Outside the Box

Where old skool architectural tools meet the process of completing a quilt....

Went to the studio space at the School of Architecture yesterday. I needed a table large enough to use for squaring up my latest quilt.

Had a eureka moment.........one of the arcjotecture students from the Spring semester had left behind a drafting table. I was able to use it to square up the quilt, it was narrow enough to fit on the table.

How convenient it was to be able to use the table and the parallel bar to draw parallel and perpendicular lines along each side of the quilt!

Awesome moment!
