Update-and few other things
Work on the Taz quilt is progressing, slowly.
Was able to concentrate on it today.
This is where we are so far.
Two rows sewn together the bottom one is next
I thought I'd share some more of the process with you in the
This is one of those patterns that has a bunch of places to match up.
Matching the diamond shapes goes something like this
place a pin in the upper most corner of this stitching
push it through to the other side and then into the upper most part of
the diamond you have behind it (right sides together)
this will/should line the points up nicely
and should come out in the same place on the second block,
if not try again.
Now secure the two blocks together like this.
Next we need to work on the corners that will form a 4 patch.
Starting with the left seems, aline them, like this
place a pin right next to the seems so they won't move
move to the center seems and do the same
you will note I have these seems pressed open instead of to one side
this is to reduce bulk and it really does help.
then on to the right side.....repeat.
all nicely pinned to help speed up the sewing.
with 8 blocks across, you will be pinning 5 spots per block
press the seems open like this after sewing the long seem together.
The results, two rows down 6 to go.
A few other things that have been created
a set of pillow cases for my son
that glow in the dark......:)
three sets of towels
(I let one get away without pictures)
and the label for the Camo quilt
also the embroidery for the back of the quilt
Seems like it has been a long time since I have posted....
and it has, but I have been busy, getting things done.
The last bit is still to be done on the Camo quilt, it is taking time,
I am sewing down the binding by hand and I can't do a lot at
once, my hand cramps up pretty quickly anymore. I need to find
a machine binding I like, but as of yet, I have not.
