So, here’s a quickie on drafting collars. I’m going to do my best here…
Above is my drafted collar. Darn, it’s labeled wrong. Ummm. Ok. Below is the draft on the fold.
From A down is the height of the collar. Generally, collars are 3 inches tall. A down is the Center Back (shown a D in the first photo).
The roll line (in green) is half the width of the collar, tapering to ½ inch from the center front (C)
F is the point of the collar, and that extends past line C, the collar front, by a minimum 1 inch.
To do the undercollar, just trim about 1/8 from the collar edge graduating to nothing in the corner.
You my friend, have a collar
I’m starting the last of the four ring quadrants on the Single Girl quilt! I have made two cutting mistakes during construction, but since I’m not a hardcore matchy matchy girl, I think it’ll all be ok.
This week I worked with the darker prints I got from fabricworm.com. More browns. I’m not sure yet if I’ll make all dark (below) and all light circles (above), or mix the two together so each circle is half light and half dark. Either way, I’m like 1/8 of a yard short of each print to finish the final quadrant! That’s what I get for moving from a crib (4 circles) to a twin quilt (12) and just assuming the fabric would work out!
I didn’t have time to call Joanns today. I had to work for a few hours in the middle of the day. I’ll do it tomorrow. That was great advice. I’m not sure why it didn’t occur to me to call them!
