I'm glad you raised this as I am hoping to do this on a quilt I am doing for my husband.
I was going to use long dressmaking pins to go through the corner of one patch and then through to the corresponding one on the back. when aligned I was going to tack it in place before quilting stitching it.
But I am open to other suggestions.

I spoke to Katy last night, she wanted a full run down on how everyone was doing - I did my best to update her as much as I could.
Katy is still having her ups & downs but she and her daughters are doing ok.
She asked me to pass on a message - she misses everyone and thinks about us all often, and she sends her love to all on the forum.
I told her we all still missed her.

Thank you from me too Carol - I do miss Katy a lot but glad she is "getting there."- even if it's a step at a time.

Oh, I am so pleased to hear about Katy and her girls.
Life here is quiet, or as quiet as it can be with a teenager in the house! I have been sewing as much as I can and will share some photos soon.

|Thanks, Carol, for the update. Glad to hear that she and the girls are coping o.k. I often think about her. Funnily enough I had just been cutting some of Katy's fabric before I read your post and the UFO I am working on is a block swap that Katy organised.|

|Glad to hear Katy update.|
Also hoping all the others who have been quiet recently are doing well.
I've been quiet too, with a recent diagnosis of diabetes type 2, it's screwed my head up. But I'm starting to peek above the parapet now. Add to that dd moving all her stuff back in whilst she goes on tour again, am living in a bit of a mess. Not much space for sewing and all my UFOs have been tightly packed.and 'organised' cant find anything.
Apart from that all is well, love and hugs to all,

Maria, I'm sorry to hear of your diagnosis. My children always seem to be coming and going too. We had work done int he house last month and all my fabric got packed into suitcases. I don't think I'll be able to squeeze into the shelves it came from either! And much as I want tto work on my HST project from a few years ago on here, I'm now beginning to wonder where on earth it is!
Add a new family member into the mix ( a beautiful black car named Tarmac) and life is somehow getting busy agin!

oh dear ladies you are having worries and woes. My brother was diagnosed with type 2 and once he got his head around the changes to his eating habits is now very well and a happy man. as for daughters and there flittings been there .
Hubby reorganised my craft/sewing room some years ago and I still haven't found a box 3x4ft of wool. He swears he didn't throw it out but I cant find it anywhere.
He is in his shed woodturning. he keeps popping in to show me progress. I will have to get the vac out as the sawdust/chippings make it look as if we have a rabbit indoors. Men!!
