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!

 

I’m linking up with Bonnie at Quiltville! Head over to check out how everybody’s doing!

I don't think I've ever been ready for a trip or event earlier than the night before. I have IDEAS for months, but those ideas don't come to fruition until the looming deadline of "if they don't trick or treat now, they don't trick or treat until next year" or "if you don't leave now, the airplane will leave without you" forces my hand and my sewing machine.
