Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. My day was great until a certain middle child caught the stomach bug. He got to stay home with mom today and is finally feeling a bit better.
Several of you commented on how precisely the points matched in these blocks. So I'm going to show you how simple it is to have perfectly matched points...
First, piece squares to make triangles like so.
Then cut the squares in half on the diagonal.
Choose two triangle units to piece together.
MOST IMPORTANT STEPS:
Iron the seams in opposite directions.
Place the triangles right sides together.
Align the center seams.
Abut the two seams against one another - use your fingers to do this.
Do not concern yourself with aligning the corners or edges of the triangles.
The fabrics will "hinge" together. There is no need to pin, but you can if you like.
Open. Press. It's that simple. And it works every time!
I went outside - in the rain - to clean up and assess the length of our grass/weeds and spotted this...
May you find beauty in the mundane this Monday!
