Happy weekend from Renton, WA!
Where more sightseeing has happened and more playing with and enjoying the antics of a certain bubbly one year old are going on.
We visited the Pike Place Farmers Market in Seattle, Wa, a huge, busy farmers market.
The displays were beautifully arranged and the producers/providers were ready to answer any and every question.
Seagulls and the smell of Puget Sound brought back childhood memories.
In my last post, my friend Kaja@sewslowly gave me a tip on the progress of my 'liberated log cabin' small quilt's second border of HSTs. She specifically mentioned the corner HST, the purple and yellow corner block. I got to looking at that and sure enough something needed to be different.
So I picked out that block and another corner block and tilted them both differently and wow, that made a difference! Now the HST border runs smooth.Thanks for the tip, Kaja.
This week I had time to sew on the 3rd and fourth border. The dimensions are now, 31" x 26".
I hope you're taking time to enjoy your summer.
Remember to share a smile and enjoy something beautiful.
I'll be by to visit.
