Pi Day and a tip

short3 QM Shorts: No Mark Stitch & Flip
From Donna Amos and Quiltmaker 
Pi Day?   Yes, it is March 14 or 3.14.   I couldn't find the correct Greek / math symbol on the keyboard, but  we all should know that Pi is important.
    I am suppose to be making a "pie" but instead wanted to share a tip I saw at Quiltmaker.  It's a "no mark the sewing line"  way to add those stitch and flip triangles that we use all the time.  Here's the link for the full tutorial.    
  How timely......after I just finished marking about another 50 large squares with a diagonal!    Needless to say, I am making a couple of these strips in different lengths to use in the future.

Tomorrow begins the celebration at SewCalGal for International Quilt Day.   This should be a great source of inspiration.    Make plans to drop by and see what is going on.    Happy stitching.

Happy Pi Day to you, too. I prefer the "pie" and I think everybody does... unless you are Sheldon Cooper... LOL
Thanks for the tip for stitch and flip. That will be lots easier and exact than my eyeballing method.

I saw that tip yesterday and thought "you know you'll sew the cardboard to the fabric", but for some reason if you say it's good I'll try it :)
