I spent the afternoon sewing my triangles into rows. I had a Lifetime movie on in the way background and a live stream of an eagle's nest we are following at school. As you may have read here, I'm teaching my second graders about the Life-cycles of nature. We are watching this live eagles nest and they are keeping journals about it. Well, two of the eaglets hatched at the end of our school week and the third is starting to hatch today...so I had this live stream on today too. (My mom also watches ...so we had fun chatting and texting) If you are a nature buff, you can follow them here. It's so amazing.
It took me about 30 minutes to sew my first row of 14 triangles together. I was getting a little worried as it was coming out VERY crooked, until l I figured out the value of this little notch! Can you hear the hark angels singing!!??? Whew! Lesson learned.
I made this endeavor a little more difficult as I'm creating a "picture" with my triangles. I finally got the hang of things & ended my sewing afternoon with seven of my 12 rows sewn together. YAH!!!! My Goal is to have this quilt top completed for a Friday finish.
Oh and this Tuesday Archive themes are: BINDINGS: whether it's your favorite bindings, a quilt roll, or a tutorial. And, anything and everything BIRDS. Stop by and share!
