So close -

Even though I usually talk about what I did "today" -

Because I post my stuff at 12:30AM the next morning -

It's actually what I did "yesterday" -

In "real life" - LOL - ;))

So - this post will "go live" on Saturday morning - August 1, 2020 -

But it's actually what I did on Friday - July 31, 2020 - ;))


Anyway -

Before I could "web" my Citrus Chips top -

I needed to check to see which way the seams were going in each block -

I made these blocks so long ago -

And pressed them ALL the same way -

Not paying attention to which way they might be rotated in the final layout -

Lucky for me - only a couple of the seams in each block were "set" -

The others could be pressed in a different direction if needed -

So -

I figured the easiest way to "see" what was going on with the seams -

Was to put them all on the wall "backwards" -

With the "right" side of the block to the wall -

And the "seam side" showing -

So I took each row off - one at a time -

And put them back on the wall - from right to left - with the seams showing -

When I got done - I had the "backside" of the top facing me -

And I could see ALL of the seams -

The blocks alternate - with the row seams going vertically and then horizontally -

So it was easy enough to "switch" the seams as needed -

I checked each column first -

And put a pin next to any seam that needed to be pressed in THAT direction -

So it would nest with the one above/below it -

Then I checked the rows -

And marked the seams the same way -

I re-pressed all of the blocks to set the seams -

Checked them again -

And decided that I would wait until Saturday to "web" the top -

Had some dinner -

Then played some games -

And about 8:00PM -

I got to thinking -

I wonder if I could web this top -

And have Flimsy #7 for July -

BOB said -

You're SO CLOSE - at least try - see if you can do it!! -
It shouldn't take you THAT long!!

So - I thought I'd give it a try -

And I did it - with an hour to spare -
Just enough time to take some photos and write up this post -

By 11:00PM - I had another flimsy -

Ta Dah!! -

Citrus Chips -

Flimsy #7 this month -

The colors are so YUMMY -


So that makes SEVEN flimsys for July -

And THAT is a record for me -

And I have Mint Chip to play with -

So I should have at least ONE for August -

And BOB is daring me to do EIGHT -

But I don't think so - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

You are a super star! That is an amazing number of tops to sew together even if the blocks were already sewn. I love this quilt with its soothing and beautiful colors.

Katie said...
