I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I think it’s a little harder to keep up with sewing when the weather is nice and there is so much to do outside!
I did get my block 8 finished for the Sew Scrappy Sampler…
~ Tying the Knot ~
For this block we will be working on partial seams (not to be confused with set-in seams)… They are quite simple and you can use the technique for future quilting projects once you know how to do it… so here we go…
This small block uses partial seams ~
Partially sew one rectangle to the square, right sides together. I usually sew a little better than half the width of the center square.
Press the seam open and add the next rectangle (second seam) working around the center square.
Keep sewing in the round…When you have all the rectangles attached sew the remainder of the partial seam to complete the block!
