This is Laura V’s Winchester!
Bonnie, here's my Winchester taking possession of my Easy Street while I stitch the binding down.It looks snuggly to me – I wish I could join him, but then Laura would never get her binding finished!
I decided to pull strips for Sister’s Choice, the Re-Do this morning…..
It’s very very easy to do this --- all you need are 2 2.5” X 11” strips….and ONE 2.5” square –whichever fabric you want in the corner of the 9 patch, that is the fabric you cut the square from.
It’s very easy for me to stack strips on my cutting board ---after a couple hours, I’ve got 42 9-patch strip sets all pinned together!
Stitch the 2.5” X 11” strips together with a 1/4” seam. MEASURE the height of your strip set. It should be 4.5” from side to side, not 4 3/8”! If you fall short, adjust your seam.
The cutting is simple….cut 4 2.5” sections from your strip set, and rearrange them as shown, placing the bonus square you cut in the bottom right corner.
I’ve got Penny all ready – I’ve tested my seam and my strip sets measure out at 4.5! I’m good to go!
Today I’ll be sewing strips into pairs…just wait til you see how Penny zooms –and if we have enough time I’ll be pressing my strip sets and start the sub cutting. I’ll worry about the star points at another time. Gonna power through these 9 patches first!
