★ Happy Independence Day! ★
Today is a great day to thank a veteran and count our blessings!
I've worked on a number of sewing projects today, but I think crossing the Cut Glass Dish (#26) off my Farmer's Wife Sampler block list feels like my biggest accomplishment. This was my second go at this block. The first time, I tried using Moda crossweave as one of the fabrics in those 1" HSTs above. I couldn't work with the bulk, so I tried again and the second time's a charm.
I am pleased with my points, but I was extremely disappointed when I put my block on the wall and stepped back to discover that those stupid dots not being straight makes my triangles look crooked! Ugh! That's what I get from trying to cut my fabric on the straight of grain rather than with the print. It does create some nice movement and goodness knows I'm not redoing it.
