Machine Piecing

Rainy Spring Days

Two rainy days this week –

Seminole Patchwork

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 blog4-22-0011edge 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.
