A Mathematical Miracle!!

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.

2 blocks

Then I added another block…

3 blocks

…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….
