Remember how I wondered out loud in my Happy to be Scrappy post why I had left Path & Stiles in Thimbleberries in mid assembly mode last winter? As soon as I started working on it yesterday the answer was clear.
After pinning the heck out of my 1st two rows and ending up using Mr. Ripper more than I cared to I slowed down and basted those HST joins in 2 passes so I could sew from the light triangle towards the dark (following the pressed seams) with 1 pin at each intersection. That worked so much better - from there I omitted the pins and just matched the other seams with my fingers as I came to them.
Even Elsa liked the slower pace... normally she steers clear when my machine is in action. And when I left the room to press that seam I came back to this. Check out the static cling action going on with her tail!
THIS post and I couldn't stop thinking about that idea...
