I did not come up with this on my own, but for the life of me I can NOT remember where I saw/read this. Anyway, I thought I’d share. If anyone remembers where I saw this, please let me know so I can refer back to it.
Sewing HST’s and Hourglass blocks are a pain to mark. It takes forever! Get a sturdy piece of card stock or thin cardboard. Line up your 2 squares of fabric, then at the card stock across, matching the corners. Use the edge of the card stock as your seam guide, and sew a scant 1/4 inch away! NO marking!
My black and gold hour glasses are VERY hard to mark. This method is totally saving my rear!! And back to sewing them up! MIGHT have a top by tonight!! A girl can hope, right?
peace and pieces,
