blocks on the wing to England

Posted by on June 13, 2011 in blocks | 1 comment

I just posted 2 pineapple blocks to Diana in Jolly England! My son is a violinist who plays with Janelle Monae and he will be at the Glastonbury outdoor festival on June 25. I wish I could pop over and see him.
On another postal note, the UPS has some new Love forever stamps and the sheet looks like a beautiful appliqued floral quilt, with a few turteldove pairs in the mix. Nice design.

  1. Piecing query re pressing seams. This is a general question from an advanced beginner. When I work on piecing (not paper piecing) a block with multiple squares and triangles (and intersecting points), and the instructions don't provide any directions on the direction to press seams, is there some systematic way to approach the problem? This weekend's block had multiple (16) squares of half square triangles of a light/dark fabric combo. I tried pressing to the dark, but it resulted in some thick seams.
    Is there a formula, or approach (work from center out?) I'd appreciate any advice or reference to a tutorial. Thanks!
    (It seems like a complex math problem!)
