Two rainy days this week –
Just the excuse that I needed to spend some time quilting.
I decided to begin the Seminole strip for my quilt.
Cutting was a breeze with the Shape Cut by June Taylor.
Strip Piecing – (My second timesaver)
What an easy way to make this strip for the quilt. It looks difficult, but the key is an accurate 1/4-seam.
To help me maintain that 1/4-inch seam, my husband etched markings on the clear base plate that came with my sewing machine cabinet. Now its easy to line up and keep the edge of the material a scant 1/4-inch away from the needle, before it is fed under the machine’s presser foot.
Yesterday, I had lunch with fellow quilters, Mae and Ruth. At our “mini’ Show-n-Tell I pulled out a sample of the Seminole strip that I’m sewing. They agreed that the Seminole piecing will add a very unique finish to my quilt and definitely looks harder to make than it really is.
