Christmas Quilt Along - part 3
Well I pulled all my small labeled baggies from the big zip-lock baggy. And I just love to make HSTs so this step of the quilt will put a skip in my step today.
When I teach these, I do like Sue's instructions - the line, sew a 1/4" each side, then cut on the line. Well, to be honest, I don't work that way. I think that is a lot of steps and I am a speed sewer. So I pair up my squares, cut the diagonal, and then speed chain those puppies thru my machine - and she loves it that way. 'Oh, momma, put the pedal to the floor!' When I press and trim up, I will put them into groups of 10 - helps with the 'Senior' counting to be sure.
I have to run some in-town errands - post office, recycle center, bank, etc.... I will be posting my little fun tutorial at noon. So until then, keep those machines humming.
