Tonight's southern sewing was from Pat Sloan's Aurifil Designer of The Month. The February designer of the month is Keri Carr, called "Lake Life.
Absolutely gorgeous block! I knew this was dealing with lots of little HST's, and I cogitated on it for quite a while. Tonight I dug out some delightful blues, a lovely Kona white, and went for it.
The process ... first, starch and press fabrics. Starch is one of my most favourite tools!
|sew 4" blocks diagonally|
|Cut the sewn square apart|
|Gather the bits up, over to the pressing station |
|Beautiful finished 1 1/2" HST|
|Repeat, repeat, repeat. Love all the bitty trimmings|
Sew them together, press carefully. Ta Da! One beautiful square! The portion with the HST's is 9 1/2", with the corner triangles, it finishes at 12 1/2".
