Some scrappy fun!
I found some bits and pieces and thought I'd sew them together
for 15mimutes to see what became of them....
A nice to thing to do when you play is to practice your seam pressing...
Either all open or...
Do you all know about segmented seams? Sewing your intersections,
then loosening the threads in the allowance so you can press them either
which way to make these nice criss cross corners?
When everything is pressed nicely, your top will lay so nice and flat,
and also, your over all size will not be wonky....
Always pressing to one side actually makes each side of your
blocks a slightly different size... did you know that?
Often for Made fabric, pressing one direction is what I do.
But if your doing something that you want
more accuracy with, like on a standard block design, segmented seams
will give you a most accurate sized block
I was just having a little fun, and made it a 9X12... I love how all the seams
look when pressed open, and it almost makes it a shame to stick it to the inside!
Now I want to make one of MIKI's Block tutorials.
Have you made one?
