This week’s block is called Carolina Lilly with Barbara Brackman’s directions here. However, I followed American Homestead’s directions instead with a slight variation.
American Homestead’s tutorial on this block featured all half-square triangles and 2 1/2” solid squares. I made all the half-square triangles as she instructed, but instead of the 3 – 2 1/2” background fabric squares on each of the long sides of the block, I used 2 – 2 1/2” X 6 1/2” rectangles. It worked like a charm. Easy assembly with good looking results.
The heat here in my neck of the woods in Texas still blazes, currently at 105 degrees. The only time I’ve been outside today was to go the the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) around 6:00 a.m. for some yummy buttermilk pancakes with warmed maple syrup. Delish! We scrambled back home quickly afterwards and have stayed inside cooling it ever since. Our neighbor lady told us this morning on her way to church that she was going to pray really hard for some rain. Hope her (and our) prayers are answered sooner rather than later.
Until next time, sew your hearts out.
