We are getting near the end of the mystery, and today you get a big step forward!
But first, it is cold here again, so time to break out a couple of wonderful slow cooker meals so we can sew the day away! If you haven’t tried my Bourbon Chicken, I made it yesterday, yum!!!
Or maybe my Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Beef Tips would hit the spot.
Now getting to the sewing room, you get to see how some of the elements go together, the Block A reveal!
Gather your elements for this block, beginning with the two-patch and bar units, the four patch units and the 4-1/2-inch half square triangles, and lay out in this pattern.
Sew in rows, or use the web method to construct the blocks. To do this, flip the second column over the first column and sew on the right side. Don’t clip the threads. Stack the third column with the top patch on the top, and sew in order top to bottom to the pieces already sewn.
You’ll have this when you are done, and can easily see how to press each row to nest the seams.
Don’t forget to ensure your joining seams go through the ‘X’ so your points come out sharp.
Here is the block in diagram form.
