Amidst the chaos that seems to define the most recent events in world news, American politics, and my day-to-day life, there has been sewing. Calming, peaceful, and focused sewing. Do you sew to drown out the chaos? I know I do. It works pretty well, at least temporarily. 🙂
I’ve been putting a pin at the very end of these seams to keep that little triangle from squirming out of place. You can see it in the photo above. Below, you can see how close I get to that pin with the needle before I carefully pull it out. With 1/4 inch seams that only cover one set of the feed dogs, these little pieces can be hard to control! That last pin makes a big difference.
With 72 completed blocks, I guess I’m making a quilt. Not sure why this took me so long to figure out.
Have a great day, everyone. When you encounter chaos in the world, just shove some sewing at it. 🙂
