Tidbit Tuesday #32

Hello hello hello!!!!

Today's tidbit is brought to you by Angie from Love Sew Special!

"When I am drawing diagonal lines on my blocks I start from the center and work towards the corners. I do the same when I am pressing my seams. My grandmother taught me this years ago, and I still use it today. It keeps the blocks from stretching, especially near the corners where there is not as much fabric to work with as in square blocks.  I often draw these lines on a piece of cardboard that I have glued and taped a piece of fine sandpaper to the center of.  This helps hold the piece in place and also helps with the distortion factor."

Awesome tip Angie!! Thank you!!!!
