I finally got my mojo on and did some serious sewing this weekend. I was really having a hard time just doing it. I have an assortment of 66 blocks.
Invariably, when moving from the design wall to the sewing machine, I sew the wrong end of the blocks together at least once…okay, two or three times. This time, I decided to number and label each block with masking tape. Wow, I’m going to do this from now on! It was great to lay out the piles and just keeping sewing them each row together one by one, without cutting the thread.
Additionally, see the way the border on 2A and 5A are sewn above? 2A has a horizontal piece across the top and 5A is turned so the long border pieces are vertical. I sewed the blocks together that way so that I didn’t have any border seams to match up. It made it just that much easier.
