i am coming along just fine on this project, but it is getting a bit monotonous.
i do have a hint to share though in sewing all of your P's into the A, B, Cs. i am notorious for turning pieces and sewing them together wrong. in this quilt that REALLY makes a difference in the design. i do not know how often i have to unstitch a seam to turn back to the right orientation. until i came up with THIS method.
i lay out the 9 P's that make up the larger 9 patch paying CLOSE attention to the proper layout and orientation. when i am making more than one block i stack them. because i am doing scrappy it lets me make sure there are not two same fabrics touching if at all possible. then, i pin all three of the blocks together in the row at each seam. for the top set for the first row i put one pin in the lower left corner. for the second row i use two pins, and the third row, 3 pins. this is so helpful when keeping track of the layout! then, i sew them up and pin the paper saying what A, B, or C they are and then when a pile is done, i go press them......
of course pictures would help you "see" what i am talking about.....ok, i will attempt it when my kids come home to help since i will be using my phone to do it with and technology is NOT my forte.
off to go make those last (4) 9 patches so that i can then start putting THOSE together. just to lay it out will be really rewarding!
