I am stitching the first of my connecting blocks for my
I am using up small scraps here.
I have a 1" template with a 3/8" seam allowance but am
also trying to use the small squares left after cutting the honeycombs
from a 5" charm square.
This allows for, at beats, a scant 1/4" seam.
I am wondering if any experienced EPPers
would please weigh in on this.
I am concerned that the scant 1/4" seams might compromise my finished quilt.
I want this quilt to last a lot longer that it takes me to make it
and I use my quilts and it will get a lot of wash and wear.
Advice very much appreciated.
So far I am only stitching in the ones with a 3/8" seam allowance.
It is a very rainy day here.
A good day to stay in and sew
and watch the backyard birds
through the windows.
Here is one I have never seen in my tiny postage stamp size urban lot ...
a Wild Turkey!!
We do see them a lot along the highways and in rural areas
but not on our city street.
Katniss has decided to keep a close eye on our visitor today
and is not helping me sew.
The look on her face when she saw this huge bird was priceless.
May you have a happy stitchy day ... :)
