    align the corner points and sides to make sure they are squared and straight.. stitch from the outside edge to the end of the line do not go over it...pivot around...sew a few stitches...remove from machine.

    Clip the seam at the "V" to where you ended the stitching on an angle to just inside the point leaving one or two threads... Do NOT go past it.

    finger press the seam open...swing the square around so that you can align the other side for sewing...pin the points then fold the piece so it lays flat and you can see where the other seam ended.

    sew from the outside edge to the ended seam then pivot around sew a few more stitches remove from machine...finger press the seam ...turn the piece over and it should be nice and flat.
    Maybe this will also have the photos..

    Yes this is a Kay Wood 6 hour quilt. It a type of QAYG. If I had used poly batting I would have been done but I love wool batting. Wool batting needs to be quilted every 3 inches, so the dragonfly's.

    Tomorrow I'm heading over to my friend Elaine's house to get some perenials. Like quilters, gardners are so generous. As a thank you she's going to get this little 6 x 20 wall hanging for her kitchen/dining room. The pattern is from "Patchabilites" a designer from Iowa not too far from where I live. Julie didn't have the birdhouse in. I thought it looked a little drab so put the birdhouse in amongst the hollyhocks. There's a couple of little bee buttons on the flowers in case you can't see them.Name:  015.JPG

    Oksewglad...it's wonderful to share with friends. Every time you walk by her plants you will think of her and that wall hanging will be a constant reminder to her of you.

    Oh OKSGlad ... that's a charming little quilt/wall hanging! I'm drooling over the hollyhocks and ITA the birdhouse just sets it off beautifully. Do hope that one or both of you have some hollyhocks to enjoy!!! They just go with farms!!!

    Plant trading can be oh so much fun ... and woudln't we all love to sneak in and steal from QNSue's gardens???

    If some one would want a start of my garden flowers, I would probably "gift" them as I have in the past. And as other gardeners have gifted me.

    Even Susan, although her dh mows them off or throws them away. This he has done repeatedly.

    I have been having fun doing the "fabhopshop" every month since last August; have won $10.00 from three different shops in different months and a yard each of four different fabrics last month (March). Did not look at the search until last night so score was lower than usual. It passes time by in my room, Love to see all the quilt shops and their latest thing they are doing. Wishing I had the extra $$$$$ to spend. Oh, well, I can live without it and try to use what I need to do in my quilt room.

    Oh how big they have grown! DDIL gets her broiler chicks on the 10th of this month.
    I am so sore, I just got in a short time ago from pitching dirt. Elaine and I dug flowers this morning and of course I have more than I need. Will share with DDIL and maybe DD when she comes this weekend. I was able to convince DH to take some of his valuable(!) time and bring me 4, count them 4, tractor manure bucket loads of dirt from DS's. Guess who has them all leveled off?
    Tomorrow work at church for a funeral (have to make dessert and salad yet tonight) and then hopefully get some of those beauties in the ground before the rains come again. And yes Elaine loved the little quilt. No sewing tonight.

    QNSue...you're feeding them something good to make them look do healthy and big. So cute.

    Oksewglad...I can imagine how you feel because tractor buckets full are a lot of good dirt. Would so like to have some of that here. Nothing makes the garden grow like "recycled" forage! These must be new beds too. You just get creative all over the farm!

    GGal ... I suspect that OKSGlad has quilt designs planted in her flower beds!!
    And with all that good moopoo she'll have incredible results!
