Mystery Pressing & Information

Those of you involved in the mystery quilt should get have gotten your first piece of your exclusive set of stamps this week.  (Two of you that signed up late will get yours next week.)

I must admit this sad little piece of the exclusive set isn’t very exciting, it is just a square.  🙂  But, just wait until it combines with the rest of the set coming in July.  I am using Jo Morton’s little pressing trick.  Of course, you don’t have to clip the corners, since in hand piecing you don’t sew through the seam allowances.

Press your pieces on the back around in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

Press your seams in a circle and your center will make a little 4 patch!

Here are several laid out…

All pressed and ready to go.

Love these finished blocks.

BTW, you will NOT be using any more of the printed little fat eighths or the light value, so  what you have left, you can keep to the side to make a scrappy border or put it back in your stash.

One more thing…  I told you a couple weeks ago I went to Pappy’s Quilting Place.   They have all of Jo Morton’s new line of fabric, “Charleston”.  I’m trying to decide what to do with it, but it will involve stamps, in fact, I have a new stamp coming this week that I might try!

What will I make today?

Happy Stitching!
