Finally I got my blocks all done and can get them to the post.
I feel like I finally got the hang of these guys yesterday.
Drawing the diagonal line on the little squares and sewing on that line, I always seemed off. Then I figured out something that helped me. I'm sure a lot of you know this already, but I just figured it out :)
Here is my square with the two small squares ready to be sewn.
I put the tip of the little square by my needle and made sure it was in the center of the presser foot.
Then I lined up the bottom tip of the little square (on my extension sewing table) on the line in between the 1/4' marks.
You can see the marks better in this picture.
I let the feed dogs do the work and just slowly moved it up. For me it was so much faster and a whole lot easier. Every time I tried using my ruler with the pen I always seem off. I'm sure with practice I will get better at that, but if I can eliminate a step and sew faster then YAY!
So here are the ones I completed yesterday.
Post Office here I come! I hope you guys are having a wonderful day! I'm linking up with Canoe Ridge Creations for Sew Modern Monday.
