Memorial Day


Hope all have a great day!
We are not doing much cause I played lumberjack on Friday & killed my back!! So been taking it easy. I did get the pink & brown quilt quilted & bound. Made a blue bandanna-rama. Watched a couple of movies thru my eyelids! LOL
Hope to grill some burgers need to come up with some sides to go with them.

So on those little bags. I left a comment asking for tips, hints etc. She emailed me back!! So yippiee This is what she said"Thanks for your comment. It takes a bit of practice to get the seams to match. I usually press them going in opposite directions and then pin right on the matched seams. The bulk (of the seam allowances)going in
opposite directions seems to help.;"
So it worked!!!

Than while he was helping his cousin. I used a small jelly roll. There were 2 strips of 10 colors 2 1/2 total yards. I used a 5 inch block for the center & got strips for 3 blocks out of 2 strips. So I have 5 blocks x 6 blocks, fun!
