My grandson has gone home so I am back at quilting.
I found that the pieces that I cut with the GO cutter on Monday went together so well. The corners matched up easily...and as you know I am a perfectionist. I only took apart a couple of seams when I made 18 blocks. The triangles were cut with the little dog ears trimmed so matching the points was a snap. The squares were cut so accurately that putting them together just seemed to be automatic.
The seams I ripped out probably didn't need to be redone but having the littlest seam off drives me nuts. The design on the light blue fabric would have hidden them, I'm sure.
In just 15 more posts, I'll hit 200 posts. I have been trying to figure out how to celebrate so I decided to have agiveaway prize....for my followers. So here is what I will do. Followers who comment on at least three of my posts between now and then will have their names put in a drawing. Those who are followers as of today get one extra chance in the drawing. This doesn't eliminate new followers and it thanks those who have been with me for some time and contine to visit. Since I post on the average about 2-3 times a week, it should be about the middle of September when I have posted enough because I am really going to try to post at least 3 times a week.
One of my guilds, Seaside Applique, is planning a fabric buying trip to Lancaster PA's Amish country on September 16th so I will buy special fabric on that trip for the winner. In one of your comments, be sure to tell me your favorite color of fabric or the color you really would like to add to your stash in case you are the winner.
