Block 7 ~ Stacked {details post}

I skipped Block 6 and went to Block 7, since it seemed more straight forward.  Definitely a plus when in a time crunch.  Blocks 6 and 8 are next.  Here are a couple tips I picked up while putting together this block.

When adding small pieces to the end of longer pieces, see if you can sew both ends at the ‘same’ time by chain stitching.


The odd man out here is the strip with a piece add to just one end.

After sewing and pressing, I double checked that my strips still had two straight edges.


This did help in the straightness of all these long seams in the final piecing of the Stacked block. 

The last tip is an old one… double check that you are putting the right pieces together.

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
