Another Blog to Visit

The other day I found a new blog (new to me anyway).
It is called Quilting Lodge. It is written by a quilting team of mother and daughter, Judy and Vicki.
They had posted about using my Stitching Lines to sew binding strips together.
I also do that, and it's a great way to use up the inside strip that you tear out and toss.
Anyway, they posted a tutorial and you should take a peak.
Leave a comment and tell them I sent you.

PS. for some reason my second link won.t take you to the tutorial. Just arrow done and click on "Joining Strips Together"

Out of the Trash For One More Workout

I sew a lot of Half Square Triangles together. I mean a lot. Maybe too many.
I like the intersection on the backside to look like this.

But many times the backside looks like this. Darned if I didn't get the underseam going the wrong way.

Leftovers from Stitching Lines to the rescue!

I just tear off an inch or two from the leftovers in the trash and stick it underneath the seam allowance just before I sew over the intersection.
Keeps the seam going the right direction every time.

Oops! I didn't sew that seam very straight.

This is fast. It doesn't slow me down. Faster than ripping out all those messed up seams!

And since I am sewing over the Stitching Lines paper in the same direction as you sew when using it, it tears off easily.

Just one more way to get some more mileage out of your Stitching Lines.
