Quilters really do know how to have a good time down in Music City, Nashville, Tennessee, USA!
Besides, what’s not to like about a quilt that uses stash, is made from simple units, yet gives dynamic star appeal that we all like so much?
It was Jared Takes A Wife Day in Nashville!
After the ladies hauled in all of their stuff – ((Yes, you know Quilters have more STUFF than any other breed I know!)) We got down to the nitty-gritty of the dreaded seam test. You might think that the star points would be the hardest part of this pattern, but actually troubles compound if the 4 patches turn out smaller than the rectangles that frame them…..so the test is – find the seam allowance that gives you the right size of four patch, and from there we are smooth sailing!
Did you ever notice that chain piecing that falls to the floor will fall in a circle? Clock wise or counter clock wise? I think it depends on which way that first four patch lands, dictating how all of the others are going to fall after it!
Teresa decided to cut things down to half-size! Isn’t this adorable?
It’s Teresa Sized!
Just to prove it, we had to take our photo together! LOL!
This is why people always tell me “You look taller in person than you do on your blog!” :cD
Let's try another slide show!
NOTHING is going to work for everyone, and it was almost comical –ALMOST – I was getting emails yesterday to please “Put it back the way it was! It worked better for me!” Argh!! We are going to stick with THIS for a while.
So here we go with another Picasa slide show which will not work for those of you with ipads or iphones so you can click the photo below to go to the photo album.
