|Cut & sewn correctly.|
How do you figure out the value a good quilting tool?
Mess up your cutting so bad you can't use it!
This is step 2 of the Star Light Star Bright Quilt A Long.
My flying geese took shape part Wing Clipper method, part traditional method, but not by choice.
|And look how pretty.|
The assuption is that you have cut the fabrics correctly. And that's where I goofed. I cut all my background squares 1" too small for the second round of flying geese. I noticed that they looked different, but I didn't stop to measure and I kept sewing. I knew it wasn't right when I trimmed them all, then started to press.
|When it doesn't look right, it probably isn't.|
Emma has been itching to take a walk up on the bridge and up onto the hill above the shop. It was a good time for a break, some fresh air, and refocus on the day.
When we got back, out came the seam ripper and with a little help from Mom, they were all 'unsewn'.
Sewing was slow and steady from that point on since I was now dealing with all bias edges where I needed to sew, I didn't need to be streatching the fabric too.
It took longer than I wanted it to, but they're all done now and ready for the next step.
|A bridge break with Emma can solve almost any problem.|
|Ready for the next step... finally!|
