Good Evening Internet Friends!
I am still on vacation until Tuesday! Snce it was raining today and I was a little worried about getting stuck in the mud at the farm and having to deal with locking the hubs and all that to mud in, my friend Sharon and I went on a fabric acquisition road trip!
Yes, she has lots of new merchandise for 4 Paws Quilting but I also picked up a few things ☺
After dinner this evening I worked on my Block Number 2 of the Scandi 3 quilt that Sharon brought in for 4 Paws Quilting.
It is a very pretty quilt and I thought I would share with you some of the things that I have been doing to make sure this quilt turns out as beautiful as it should.
When sewing angles together in quilting I will start by putting my needle into the needle down position and place the fabrics to that the edge aligns with the edge of my 1/4 foot:
I will usually use something like a Purple Thang that SewBiz by Michelle carries to adjust the top fabric to be in perfect position on the lower fabric and both pieces align with the 1/4" edge of the foot ☺
One pressed I get a unit that looks like this:
TAH DAH!!! Easy Peasy...
Tonight I also diligently used my rulers and did a little better at obtaining more perfect corners and I will show you how I manged that tomorrow:
I present you Block 2 of the Scandi 3 Quilt. In total I will make four of these blocks before proceeding on the the next color ☺
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
