From Thanksgiving to Christmas
I was sick with "the crud" for 7 weeks.
Two rounds of antibiotics, prescription couch syrup
and a trip to the chiropractor because I coughed
so hard I threw my back OUT!
When I could must up some energy I gathered up
lots of Christmas themed Moda charm packs
My new Bernina, Ms. Nina has the Dual Feed patchwork foot
and a wonderful guide bar and I was aching to try it out!
TIP: To find a perfect 1/4" seam - Sew 3, 1 1/2" strips together
the center piece will finish at 1"
Keep adjusting the seam allowance til you get it right!
I began sewing 2 patches - 2 light / 2 darker volume prints
built those into 4-patches
check out these seam intersections
this dual feed and patchwork guide works!
My last finish for 2015...is this Christmas top
The strip on the left will be part of the backing.
I will quilt it in 2016.
Because I was so sick while making this top
I am naming it...
"Catching the Cold"
What was your last finish in 2015?
