Fits Like a Glove

I have a confession; I’m not the best at ironing my seams. Regardless whatever I try, something seems to always go awry. On my “Tea with Ama and Me” since the pattern designer, Em & Me Designs didn’t give any ironing information I decided to do something different, I have no clue to why I decided to do this, but I decided to press all of my little 9-patches by splitting my seams and ironing to the dark. They sure look cute on the back. It took a little extra time, but I sure found out it was worth it.

Normally, I always construct my rows and then attach each row together, but I wanted to make sure they nested well, so I sewed a row and then attached it to the “mother ship”. On my dark 9-patches the centerfold always pointed north and south, then my light 9-patches nested right inside the dark ones.

The way this pattern was done; this was a perfect way to construct it. I love it when all the blocks play well with the other ones!

I got halfway and I sure like this quilt top! I remember when I was at Festival that year I kept going back to see this particular top and finally decided it was going home with me.

Now it is complete! Done is always good in my book! I guess I have tomorrow to decided what I will wok on next, I have plenty more to finish!

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,

I enjoy piecing quilts and getting to know people, as well as sharing the information I have on sewing. I love the sense of accomplishment once I'm finished.
