What about being made from scraps? Does that mean you're Scrappy?
Oh, no, my yellow blocks are peaceful! They want everyone to....
|check out those seams, perfecto!|
RSC2015 this month is yellow.
I decided to add in some of my precious Mary Englebreit collection for fun...
I usually sew hexies by hand but I wanted to try the method tallgrassprairiestudio shows on her blog of sewing hexies by machine without marking.
It worked! Very well as a matter of fact.
I am not new to inset seams, meaning not sewing across seam allowances, having done it many times. The tutorial was clear.
My suggestions are to take her seriously when she says do not take even one stitch into the seam allowance. There are 25 blocks here and it took about forty minutes to sew and press the runner.
Pretty darn quick. And the seams meet just so, and lay flat...
I plan to do an envelop turn along the edges, then machine quilt. Maybe add some applique flowers.
