Welcome to the May Tips and Tutorials Tuesday linkup! As I was working on my bright version of Layered Diamonds last week, I thought to capture a few photos of how I sew the trickiest part of piecing on point blocks together into rows: connecting the final block when there are no seams to pin or align.
I like to press the pieced row in half, right sides together to create a small crease. Then I press the final block wrong sides together. In this case, you’ll just have to take my word for it that the solid was pressed right sides together! 😉
The pressed folds will be inverse of one another when you lay the blocks out, right sides up.
The inverse folds when then nest together for aligning. You can then pin or sew as you normally would with confidence you have aligned the last block!
What tips and tutorials do you have to share this week?
