Another city…another show! I finished setting up my booth today for the AQS Quilt Week in Des Moines, IA. The show opens tomorrow and you can find me in booth #825. I’ll be doing the Learning Center Demo on Thursday at 2pm! Come by the booth for continued demos on Brilliant Bindings and using the tool! Hope to see you there!
I did some piecing tonight and realized I left most of my pins at home. So, I needed a way to mark my centers without pins. I have done this technique before over my many years of sewing….
Mark with a finger pressed crease!
Finger press a crease in the center of two pieces you want to join.
Align the creased centers and no extra pins needed!
#1 – Finger press a crease into the centers of pieces to join when no pins are handy or to save time.
And to save electricity and time running to the ironing board…
#2 – Finger press the seams to save time!
Three blocks pieced tonight and only the sewing machine was plugged in.
