Clue 1 of "On Ringo Lake" just went live. 50 9 patches. Tiny little 3 inch finished 9 patchs
Excited to get started on this, but need to also get the binding on the Scrappy Sister's Choice/Chinese Coins. And the finishing on the first Camp project, and pick up the gussets on my socks. (And laundry LOL.)
Good thing it's a holiday weekend!
Bonnie has us doing them in (short) strip sets, but I'm going a bit off the rails after this first set, because I pulled all of THIS out of the "1 inch finished" bin, and I would REALLY like to use them up. These are the off-cuts from the background strips of the Scrappy Sister's Choice.
I am amused at the 'perfect' sewing rooms that people are so proud of. My sewing space is the dining room and it usually looks something like this:
Things I've already learned:
- more accurate cutting - leave the line on the fabric! Not all my stuff from the bin is to that standard
- so measure, measure, rip, redo, trim. It's probably going to take me all week to do these 50 little units.
- I have a tendency to have an nice accurate seam allowance at the start, but at the end of the strip set, I veer off. Using a stiletto is helping. Good habit to acquire.
- I may need a different leader/ender during this project. THIS bucket is not the darks for Ringo Lake! Woe is me if I get my piles of fabrics confused.
