I'm making good progress on the Gift Basket quilt.
It's a very easy pattern and goes together quickly.
|This is the setting I used on the Bernina 440--a very narrow zigzag.|
|The piecing of the basket block is so simple--only 4 seams!|
This is seam one--a flippy corner.
|The flippy corner block gets split...|
|...and attached to the main basket triangle--seams 2 and 3. |
Then the handle piece is ready to add on--seam 4.
Boom! Basket block done!
I had a little trouble getting my corners to come out nicely, so I tried a sneaky trick--glue basting!
OMG--why haven't I tried this before?????
Just a tiny dot of glue at the corners where you see the pins--awesome!
No reverse sewing on this puppy!
|Now to do a little block placement tweaking before putting it all together.|
|I immediately sewed my waste triangles (from those flipped corners) into half square triangles--not sure what will become of them, but when I need them, they are ready to go!|
