Good morning! Seems weird we're starting the week off on a Tuesday, doesn't it? Nice for a short work week though, unless you're forcing five days of work into four.
Did you have a good long weekend? Our garden clean up lasted longer than we thought, but it looks soo good. I'm so grateful that I didn't have to do all that myself. While that was going on outdoors I was busy working on my row-along row. Have you joined up yet?
Honestly, I'm not generally a big fan of "technique" sewing.. you know, those methods for making 20 half square triangles out of a square of fabric and a unicorn's wish. Ok, so I exaggerate just a little, but I think you know what I mean. I'm never successful with them, it's totally me and not them. But seriously this method of stitching together big squares and ending up with a nice straight row of 1 inch squares is a delightful surprise! At each step I kept thinking that it would end up taking longer than was worth it, but it was so fast and accurate. I would totally use this method again, and think about using it for different sizes. GENIUS I TELL YOU. Even if you don' t make this row-along quilt, you need to hop over and see Lori's method for yourself.
If you're stitching along, or even if you're not, there's a flickr group! You should totally check it out! I'll tell you, it makes me so happy to see other people using PKM in their projects.
To that's it for today. It's a busy short week for me. AND IT'S GOING TO BE HOT AGAIN! Insult! Outrage! Ok, not like I thought summer was actually over but HOT! AGAIN! Ok that's it for the complaining, for now. Have a good day people! xo
P. S. Sorry, no spell check ... good luck reading it!
