Hello Friends, it’s Tuesday again! I hope your week got off a great start. So, how are you dealing with your UFOs and WIPs? Click HERE if you missed my post last week on my thoughts on UPOs vs. WIPs.
I managed to get one more block (last one) done for my WIP Just Add Shortcake quilt, and now the next step is to sew the blocks together to make the quilt top happen. Pattern is available HERE.
Now for today’s two cents… you know how we are supposed to anchor down the quilt at the edge in domestic machine quilting? For a long time, I would lengthen my straight stitch and sew. But even with a walking foot, sometimes, I end up with wonky corners — just because from sewing straight over a large distance (and as a result fabrics being scooted along in the sewing process). Now I do large zig-zags instead of long straight stitches — the result is no more wonkiness!
And that’s my 2-cents — it’s now your turn! I shall catch up with you later!
