On Ringo Lake – Week 7 with Brenda and AccuQuilt!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing! There are times in life when you need to channel a Disney character.  When the journey was getting tough for Nemo and Dory, this is the mantra that Dory used to keep motivated.  With so many clues and so much sewing with this mystery, this mantra may come in handy!

I had time off this weekend and we were in town, so I was thrilled to have a bit of solid sewing time. Everything is all lined up. Ready, set, SEW!

Usually I sew about 20-30 units, cut them apart and then press.  That gets me up and moving a bit more frequently.  However, with this clue I mostly just powered through in two sittings. With no cutting fabric before sewing, this clue went faster than any of the others.  Also, it was nice that there was only one seam to sew in each of the units.

I love seeing that big pile of units all ready to be cut apart!  The accuracy of the cutting with Accuquilt Go leads to such beautifully accurate units!

When I press the units, I count them out into piles of 10 so I can double check my final count.  Good thing!  Last week I found myself 2 units short!  Here are all of my lovely piles of 10.

By Saturday afternoon I had all of my units done, packed, and ready to be assembled into blocks next week when I move onto the next clue.

Then I moved onto finish the binding on the adorable snowman table runner to bring for Saturday night’s holiday gift exchange with my running friends. My 590 has a beautifully consistent buttonhole stitch and I am really enjoying fusible appliqué for the first time ever. Happy sewing until next week!  Brenda
