Do you recall the Chevron quilt that I was so excited to put together? that was back in March sometime! and I had only sewn about 4 squares to create 16 hst's.
Yesterday was such a dull day here and threatened to rain and then did rain so I got out my Chevron UFO and got sewing. Well, I tried to, but, after two blocks, the thread snagged and I broke a needle. I spent half an hour taking everything down to the needle plate and bobbin case to pieces several times and two broken needles later (one of them didn't even sew a stitch) and I was cruising along nicely.
Have you used this technique before? sew two even sized squares together on all four sides, right sides facing and then cut through on opposite diagonals.
It is a very quick and easy method but you have to be careful when sewing theses hsq's together as the edges are now on the bias and stretch easily.
I will be working on these rows over the next week.
