I've been under the weather with Bronchitis for over a week but today I decided that I felt well enough to do some sewing.....
|LESSON # 14 Block # 22|
|LESSON # 7 Block # 4|
One thing I am learning on this quilt along is that it might be better if all of the blocks using the Tri-Recs rulers were made at one time. I'm sewing on my Featherweight Singer 222K and it took me some time to get the seam allowance set for the Tri-Recs units (skinny flying geese on Lesson # 7). I had the seam allowance just perfect the last time I made units like this but of course the machine has sewn other items in between and I had to start all over again in checking the seam allowance. Although I'm happy with the Block, I can see areas where my accuracy is not so perfect!
Lesson # 14 was pretty straight forward. I used the June Tailor Perfect Half & Quarter Square ruler to trim the Quarter Square Triangle units and the Half Square Triangle units so the block went together okay. I made each unit oversized and then trimmed down, makes it more accurate when joining up the units.
Feeling under par probably didn't help as I was sewing these blocks so I think I'll have a rest now and tackle another block or two tomorrow.... or maybe the day after....
