I should be working! But here’s block #3. Both of the fabrics used in this block don’t come from the S’more Line. I’m trying to make sure this quilt gets a real scrappy look… so I don’t want too much matchy-matchy going on.
Ask me later if I’ll regret that! lol
I still need to buy this design wall from Amazon. I’m trying to mix up the colors as I go along… but it would be nice to start placing these up on the wall so I can see if they are going to play nice with each other.
I’m sure all of you seasoned quilters already know this one, but I hadn’t seen it done quite this way – and I think it’s brilliant. Saw it on The Quilting Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson, so I can’t take credit for this. But dang, what a great thing. 🙂
By using some blue painter’s tape, it’s easy to mark an exact sewing line and an additional line marking an extended length of 1/4″ seam guidance in front of your needle.
This was super helpful when doing the diagonal stitching – because…. ::: drum roll ::: … all you have to do is steer the opposite point down that stitching line as it advances towards the needle. Flippin’ brilliant.
Maybe I’m easily amused today… but I loved this little crutch. 🙂
