Interweave Quilt -

Is a FREE pattern from Timeless Treasures - HERE -
Interweave Quilt - designed by Marlous Carter

I already had the strips sorted in pairs - HERE - and - HERE -

And switched up the pattern a little to make it longer by inserting some squares cut from some 5" squares which then allowed me to make the "ends" longer -
Check out the pattern and you'll see what I mean - ;))

I decided to use my LEFT-EZE™ Rule - because - although it was designed to cut HST and QST - it can also be used to cut short strips and squares -

If I turn it THIS way - I can use the 1/2" line between the "2" and the "3" to cut a strip 2-1/2" wide -

Then move it to the LEFT again - and cut another one -

The bottom of the ruler doesn't need to be lined up with the bottom of the fabric unless I want to - the right edge of the fabric is lined up with the 2-1/2" line and I can trim the LEFT side -

Turn the strip around - and cut the squares -

This one is a little short -

But if I sew with the short one on the top - and use the bottom one to gauge the 1/4" seam - the difference is hidden in the seam allowance -

And as a little bit of extra insurance - I can make sure that this pair is at the end of the checkerboard part so I can give it a little bit more "quilting" when I get there -

So - I started with the wonky squares and pinned the folded rows to the design wall because they are so long -

I was able to cut and sew together four rows this afternoon -

Before it was time to check the mail -

I'm expecting two packages and was sure they would be in today's mail -

Checked the mailbox - got the bills - but no packages -

Hmmm - Checked my "Informed Delivery" and it said that BOTH packages were "Delivered, Front Door/Porch" -

Ummm - NO - I was sitting in front of the window to the front porch all morning sewing and waiting for the mail - and it was NOT
"Delivered, Front Door/Porch" -

So it looks like I'll be waiting by the "group" mailboxes tomorrow for the mail carrier to find out what happened to my packages. I've had problems with my mail in the past - last week they signed off on having delivered a package to the "Parcel Locker" when it was left on my front porch. Now I have to deal with them saying they delivered something when they didn't. I can't complain to the company that sent me the package - they have USPS confirmation saying that it was delivered -

Don't you just love it? -

Yeah, me neither - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I would let the company know if the carrier can't "fix it" Monday. I would also call the main PO and complain.

I didn't know I could cut shorter strips with my Left-Eze ruler.

Oh no! Not another go-round with the post office. But having worked in a place where customers could track their packages and the post office claiming delivery when we had nothing was ugly. So yes, it's not the company's fault, but may be a good idea to let them know. At the very least, they could opt for a different shipping company. But I'm curious to see what you're getting...particularly if its quilty!

I like the trick for the 'short' wonky piece. It was a "duh" moment for me. Well, I have those quite often! Good luck with getting your packages.
