Yesterday was one of those days I dream of. I had the entire house to myself for the whole day!! Sure, I could have done lots of things, but I really wanted to end this year with a bang. I desperately wanted to finish putting all 16 blocks of Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore” together, complete with all of those half-square triangles. So that is what I did!
First, I finished sewing all of the triangles together and then trimmed them to the correct size. You can read more about that here. It is a lot of work, but so worth it! Next, I stitched them together to make one long strip….
….crossed my fingers and started stitching.
So far, so good!
I did the exact same thing for the other side.
When I came back in, I was raring to go, but my seat was occupied. Didn’t matter, I was pumped!
Finally! After many, many hours, all 16 blocks stitched together!
Cue the fireworks!
Til next year…
