The workshop today with Kay Capps-Cross was terrific. I had a great time, although I got my pins taken away by Kay, and got caught cutting my strips with a rotary cutter and ruler instead of ripping them (-rebel that I am!). It sure seems like it hurts some of the fabric when you rip. If I have to cut off a 1/2 or even a 1/4" before I use it, then what's the purpose of ripping. I have been known to rip extra wide backing, when the ripped edge is going on the sides of the longarm.
Please leave me a comment and tell me: Do you rip?
Anyway, back to the workshop.....I finished 4 blocks and part of another one while there, and finished that 5th one when I got home from the gym tonight.
Not my best shot, but they wanted a photo of me with all my strips. That's how I sew so fast, I keep my strips handy.
