|Sugar Cone 3 inch block|
I like them and blues that remind you of sky are beautiful. Out came the blue scrap bins, the paper pieced pattern sugar cone and I made some blocks.
Then carefully while it's in place hold a pin parallel to the paper and carefully making sure not to distort it, pin parallel to the sewing line. Repeat on other side. Take out the first pins, sew, flip over and it should be sewn on both printed lines and match exactly.
You see, by pinning this way you leave the pins in while not sewing over them. You can knock off your machine's timing by hitting a pin.
And now I want to tell you about my favorite new tool! I got a little Fiskars cutting set last year for little paper piecing blocks. I didn't use it til yesterday and WOW! I love it! It twirls around so you can cut without moving the block or ruler. It turns around easily. Perfectly.
In fact it's so perfect I don't want to use it.
I don't want to use it because I'll use it up and hopefully they'll make more.
They stopped making my favorite bra, my favorite lipstick, my favorite running shoes, so I hope they'll keep making these!
I am behind on making the 3 inch squares in monthly colors but here are all the ones I've made so far.
