Had the sewing machine out for another project (to be seen later) and some hems that needed doing so I took the opportunity to sew together the strips cut previously when getting the triangles for the blue quilt (which has stalled at the mitered corners, and I will get to that also in a future post).
So the instructions were to sew the eight strips into two sets.
The difference between the two sets? The direction the seams are pressed.
This is apparently going to be pivotal once the strips are cut into squares then triangles and sewn back together again.
I may need to work up to cutting my stripes into the next shape.
My friend has been working on her Graduation quilt so has not caught up with me yet on the Sampler Quilt. However, being an organised person I expect once she sets her mind to it, it won't take her long at all. It is going to be interesting seeing the difference her fabric choices will make to the various blocks.
