It sounded good in theory.
Okay...so I am up. It's Friday, and I am pumped. I got my game face and slippers on...Whoops, I need to get more basting pins. I mean, where have they run off too? I have no idea, but there's no progress until I go to the store. I made it out with just basting pins and one scrap of fabric.
I tried winging it on Sunday, and that didn't work. Then, I tried drawing the lines. It's really dark fabric. So, that didn't work. So, I thought, I have seen people tape the lines. Hmm...
So, I just set the ruler down to show that it's 1 inch apart. I just line up the ruler an inch away from the outer edge of the last taped row and lay the tape right next to it. Sounds super easy.
This is Monday, taping is seriously (5 hours) time consuming , I think it was totally necessary and worth it. I am quilting it now, and the lines are straight. So, that part is working. So far tension hasn't been a huge issue.
Happy sewing! Blog at ya later!
