No post since Wednesday? I've been knitting, not sewing. And no, I can't show you what I'm making because it's a surprise. I'm almost done, so I will be back to the sewing room full-time soon.
I did cut the pieces for Step 2 of the BOM for my Wednesday Block Party. Because there are a lot of strips in the step, I used Debbie Caffrey's Power Cutting technique.
I like the Creative Grids rulers because the lines are very thin, but easy to see. Some rules have lines thick enough that your cuts can be almost 1/4" off if you cut multiple strips at once.
Here are the pieces for Step 2:
And here is what they look like sewn together. Notice that orange square sewn to the background triangle? The dog-ears are 3/8" -- now that's a mystery!
And here is what they look like pressed and trimmed.
My friend Mary and I have a bet that the strange-looking
quarter-square triangle is going to result in a three-quarters square
triangle. But we have to wait to find out!
