I don't think it was pork. My girlfriend and I went and we are both sick--she's worse than me, at home in bed. But I am trying to stick it out--no paid sick leave and don't want to give up vac pay to be sick. We didn't eat anything at the show--just coffee and a muffin, so the germs were in the air. Batiks ar really HOT this year! Every other quilt that I saw ther had been done using batiks--soooo pretty! Hope you get better soon. :D

Duh! A little too late in the project I realized you don't cut the triangles off and then sew down the bias! You sew the first line (for the Geese) then you sew a parallel line 1/2 inch away. Cut the point off then halfway between the sewn lines. You have your HST DONE.
