Three things to be happy about:
(1) good health
(2) farm fresh eggs
(3) taking a quilting class
This reminds me - I bought some classes from Quilty that I haven't taken yet, gotta get busy!
Do you use Best Press?
I love it because it puts just the right amount of body to your fabric, not too much stiffness - and it smells good too!
As you can see from the bottle, I was running out, at the point to where it was almost making slurping noises!
It was at night and I didn't want to run out the next day and get more...
... Amazon to the rescue!
I got a gallon refill that, according to their site, was on sale. I also bought a book that I had been waffling about, and with my Prime membership I got free 2-day delivery.
As an added bonus, a friend told me that you can stretch it with water. (See my scrungy ironing board cover? Never mind about that!)
I added enough water to almost double the amount I had left in the spray bottle and you know what? I can't tell the difference!
So now I know...
Meanwhile, I'm still cutting and sewing the Idaho Square Dance blocks; with the precut strips from my 1-1/2" bin it's almost mindless sewing!
Here are parts ready to be assembled into strips...
... and strips waiting to be pressed and assembled into blocks!
I think if I use a sashing strip, I'll probably set them 8 x 9 with two borders.
Or maybe I'll dust off my EQ and play with an alternate block... we'll see!
Have a great day everyone, I'm going to fix an omelet and mixed fruit for breffus. Sew forth and sew on til later!
