On Ringo Lake – Week 3 with Brenda & AccuQuilt!

December 14, 2017

I hope everyone is keeping up! For me, so far, so good. I didn’t have the right sized strip cutter to prepare this week’s coral units which meant I had to go old school and use my rotary cutter. Thankfully, it went pretty fast when I stacked my strips, but I would never be able to cut 6 layers like an Accuquilt cutter! I wonder if Bonnie has plans for us to use to coral anywhere else. I don’t have very much left!

The good news was that I could use the same half square triangle die as last week to make the other part of this week’s unit. I decided to time myself. Any guesses as to how long it takes to cut 16 half square triangles? It took about 30 seconds to turn a strip into half square triangles. Without Accuquilt, there is no way I could keep up with the pace of this mystery!

I put the half square triangles onto my coral rectangles, sewed them on, trimmed the coral and pressed very carefully according to the directions.

I’ve got about a quarter of my units done and I’m taking a break to make a fast and easy table runner for a gift exchange this week. I love the buttonhole stitch on my Bernina 590!  I got this stitched up in a jiffy!

Happy stitching until our next clue!
