Now, before I can sew the vertical seams, I have to clip the sewn folded seam allowances up to the stitching. Hope you can see this in the photo.
Every Sunday, we go to 7:30 am mass then on to breakfast at the local diner...it's our weekly "date"... he reads the paper while I read whatever novel I'm into while savoring steaming mugs of coffee and pancakes and eggs! My two sons (23 and 27) tell us we are becoming old folks!! :-) But we love our Sunday mornings!!
I hit the sewing room mid-morning and finished cutting the 2" squares for my snowman wallhanging I'm making using the fusible Pellon quilter's grid. This is what it looks like when all the squares are fused onto the grid.Next, you sew all the seams going in one direction. I sewed all the horizontal seams first. Here's what it looks like from the back.
This is as far as I got today! Hope to do more tomorrow evening after work. I've done some sewing and piecing since my shoulder surgery on 12/24/08, but have not done any quilting....that takes some serious shoulder moving for sure, so doing this small piece will be a good experiment.
Hope everyone is having a fun evening and is cozy warm! They are forecasting snow here on Tuesday....so maybe we'll get a snowday and I can finish this project! Keeping my fingers crossed! God Bless! Polly
