Now that I can put Clue #1 to bed, time to get back to sewing those Patriotic Star units I started last week. Got a little sidetracked w/annual Fall cold with the fluctuating temps but, back at it today!
|Half of the 25 block units have BOTH of their corner squares sewn on |
and the other half, waiting patiently for their turn at the sewing machine...
|Sewing the corner squares on the Patriotic Star units - my Dad would refer to my sewing set-up as a 'jig'...loved that term, sounds 'festive' don't you think?|
GREEN painter's tape to the rescue - works great for establishing a definitive sewing line for my squares w/NO marking...Yes! I HATE to mark - takes ALL the FUN out of sewing ;-)
Time to mow so I can sew...later.
