After all the media hype about the horrible storm we would be having last night, the power went out about 5 PM, and we were prepared, so immediately built a fire. Alas, my son was so disappointed when an hour later the power was back on. I was happy that the storm did not materialize as forecast. We have one tree down.
These are squares and rectangles I worked on last week for the Gift Wrapped Table runner.
To continue making the rest of that block I needed to add a triangle across the top of a rectangle. The easiest way to do that is to press the square in half
then sew across the diagonal with right sides together
I then went back and sewed about a foot’s distance away.
In this way, the little pieces that I cut off are all ready sewn together and in another project I can use those half square triangles.
So putting the pieces I made last time with these, created this piece.
I turned one upside down so all the yellow pieces formed a bow. There are 12 of these with more blocks to make. Keep tuned until this Gift Wrapped table runner becomes a reality.
