Just like the winds that blow through Wyoming, the thoughts posted here are varied - some a strong tirade and others merely a whisper.
That's a good idea.
Yes! Many blocks don't require this, but the blocks for Jeremy's quilt have many directional half-square triangle elements... turn one the wrong way and the pattern is ruined. I lay them out, mark the top left corner block with a pin. Then I sew them in 2's. Leaving the threads from the chain sewing there I add the next unit onto the end of the units for 3's, etc... clear as mud? Perhaps I need to do a blog post on this! But that would be hard because... I FINISHED ALL 25 BLOCKS YESTERDAY!! YAH!!Kat
I do try to lay the block out bedfore stitching...when I don't, I inevitably get things backwards...otherwise, I chain sew...scrappy!!
I usually make a sample block and pin it up by my sewing machine. I lay out the pieces on a cutting board that I keep next to my machine, on a tray table.
Great idea!!!God bless and have a beautiful day sweetie!Giveaway...my place!!!
