My Challenge was to have a complete row stitched together by December 31. Well! It’s only December 29 and I have met my Challenge! First I stitched a couple of blocks together.
Then I added another block…
…and another one. Finally, the row was finished. And to top it off, I added a side border! Jenny is thrilled!
Some people asked me why I pressed my seams open for my half-square triangles. Here is the reason: When I stitch and press all my seams open, I have a ready-made guide for my seam line.
I don’t exactly know why this works, but I consider it a Mathematical Miracle!!
Til next time….

Just lovely. I really would like to start on this one in the new year, but I have a long list!
It’s pretty intense, but I am loving every minute of it!!
Fantastic progress! I am still working on Block 1. Jenny is adorable!
Thanks! She keeps me company while I stitch away!
Wow!! They look great together Congratulations of meeting your challenge.
I have been jumping around with my blocks and plan to do one of the borders next. Its been ages since I worked on FOB!!!!
Thanks! I think I will start one of the borders soon. I am afraid once I get all the blocks done, I will just end there!
your blocks are just beautiful! I am so impressed that you met your challenge early!
and thank you for your post about the perfect HST’s I love to overcut mine too- makes for less drama in the end here in my sewing room 🙂
I know its a lot of extra work, but the end result is worth it!!
Love what you have accomplished! Very beautiful work and as always, an excellent tip as well.:)
