My post today is going up a little later than usual, which is a sign that it is clearly summer, and the kids rule the roost at home. There’s much less time for sewing and pattern writing now. I still try to fit it in at night, but it’s so much harder when the kids stay up later in the summer. During the days we’re knee deep in trips to to the pool, dress-up parties, nerf-gun wars and lots and lots of messes.
I sat straight up in bed early this morning and realized that for the first time since I started this Tuesday linky party, I had forgotten to write a blog post. Luckily, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about…
Did you happen to see Preeti’s link up to my Tips and Tutorials Tuesday last week? Last year, Preeti from Sew Preeti Quilts, came up with a new method for making Quarter Square Triangles. She linked it up again for us last week as a reminder that this cool method is out there in the blogosphere. I know it’s been a year… how did I miss this?!! Glad you linked up Preeti!
This is intriguing to me because I have a pattern to write up that features quarter-square triangles, and I’d love to be able to make 4 at a time.
I tried out the method using some 5″ charm pack squares, and I loved the result. So fast!! Thank you Preeti! You just made my life a lot easier.
Now I can get to work on sewing up and writing the pattern to that quilt I designed… I better get busy.
