Happy belated Independence Day! Just got home from celebrating with good friends in Washington. Here we are all decked out in our red, white and blue! I'm the short one on the left.
We got home this afternoon and I've been cutting and sewing like mad to try and get caught up on the four days I didn't get to sew.
Another "wish I would have known" about this pattern that I'm using. There were no instructions about which way to press the seams so when it doesn't say anything, I usually press to the darkest side. After going with that default, I think it would have come together much better had there been instructions to press the seams either open or alternate the pressing direction every other block to go together easier. I think there should always be pressing instructions with any pattern. Pressing to the dark doesn't always work the best. Just my 2 cents worth!
I know for sure that the Pretzel Twist quilt I have been working on (which is temporarily on hold)
So my purple and green concoction is under way and I have until the 16th to get this done. I need some encouragement and pushing to keep at it! Don't let me quit! I would really like to have it pieced and quilted and bound by then if I can. Hoping that linking up to the OMG party will motivate me to do this.
