Kinda hard to get a good picture of it because it's so long and skinny, so here are a couple of close ups so you can see details.
This is the first time I've used an 8-1/2 cut and I really enjoyed working with that size, but it seems SO much wider than an 8 cut! Now, I thought that the numbers used to describe the widths of the cuts were 1/32" increments, so a #8 cut was actually 8/32nds" or a 1/4", right? Well, I'm sure that an 8-1/2 cut is more than a 64th of an inch winder than an 8 - can anyone tell me if I'm right or wrong - or explain it to me?
Edited to add: This rug was made from a free quilt pattern that I found on the internet. You can find it here http://www.ctpubblog.com/2010/03/17/bird-on-a-branch-table-runner/
