When you chain-piece, you just sew one block after another without stopping to cut threads. You end up with a "chain" of attached blocks. You just sew one side, then start again and sew the other side, before cutting the threads apart.
Then, I pressed both long sides to the outside, and checked to make sure that each block had a "twin" with a matching center. These seem to be upside down!
It has gotten scorching hot this week, but we are still having heavy rains during thunderstorms. All this has made the yard extremely green for this time of year. I took a walk around the house this morning with my camera.
I love the way the sun lights up the woods in places where it can break through the trees.
The swallowtail butterflies are enjoying my flowering shrubs, including abelia, butterfly bush, and crepe myrtle.
