What's On My Design Wall? - 12/14
This week it's my Design Floor. The design wall is only 60 x 80, so it simply won't work for this project. This is the backing for Music Star. Each large square finishes at 10 inches, so the backing will be about 90 x 110 when I finish it. The first 3 rows are sewn together and the next 3 are waiting to be sewn. I hope when it is finished it is a pretty day out so I can get a picture of the entire backing.
To help me keep my place as I pick up each row to sew, I've taken some of my flat head pins and written numbers on them with a permanent marker. These go in the top left corner of the odd # block. Then I flip the next block over on top of it and pin the right edge at the top to show me where the seam is supposed to go. I do this down on the floor so when I get to the sewing machine I don't get the blocks out of order - or more accurately put them back in the correct order. So far, it has worked well.
