Happy 35th Anniversary OLFA!


OLFA is turning 35!!!  When OLFA asked if I'd like to make a block to help celebrate their 35th anniversary I agreed immediately!  OLFA is my absolute favorite ruler/mat/rotary cutter brand.  Hands down.  No question!  

OLFA sweetly sent me this awesome rotating cutting mat, ruler, and cutter to help create my block.

I was super grateful for the rotating mat since I decided to make a block with half-square triangles that finish at 1.5"  This mat was perfect for trimming all my HSTs down to the perfect size! Tiny things are scary, but the right tools can make a project so much easier!

Ta-Da!  My block is 6.5" unfinished.  
Blue fabric:  Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner 
Yellow fabric: Charley Harper by Birch
Numbers: cut from a Japanese print and appliqu├ęd on
