SEW READY TO SEW!
The feed for Quilt Cam is embedded at the bottom of this post, but my text here will give you an idea and some background on just what is going on tonight!
I pulled out a sweet “Best Built” from the late 1950s to sew on tonight…straight stitch only, powerful motor, and great two tone….aqua blue and cream…FUN!
Tonight’s project? Well, I “NEED” close to 100 3” finished red & neutral 9 patches.
It’s not rocket science, but I have stalled on this project because of the monotony, and….well, the job of cutting more strips --- I was seriously LOW in the 1.5” neutrals department.
Loading odd hunks and chunks onto the Accuquilt Studio and cranking them through.
The worst part? Ironing the fabric before loading the tray because after that, everything is a breeze.
10 seconds to crank through 10 layers!
And waste? Not very much. a bit at the edge…
And anything 3/4” or wider but less than 1.5” goes into the string bin!
Nice set of neutrals ready to roll tonight!
Test sewing…2.5” strip set! Yeah baby!
I’ll be working on these probably for the next few Quilt Cam sessions. 100 is not a small number, even if it is easy sewing. I’ll need some strip sets light/dark/light and some dark/light/dark and it’s going to be a whole lot of strip sets through the machine.
