Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall


There’s not much on my design wall today.  I’ve done virtually nothing in the sewing room for the past two weeks.  I did finally finish these coasters.  The  bias binding was driving me crazy. They measure 3-1/2″ across so it’s a tight turn as compared to other curves I’ve done in the past. This is what I learned:

  • Cut the bias binding at 1-1/2″
  • Do not double it as on quilts
  • Use a 1/4″ seam
  • Do a straight join

I was even able to machine stitch the binding down.

On the wall proper is the June BOM for the Alphabet BOM. R is for Rail Fence.



This week the weather is supposed to be relatively cool, so other than the block for July, I’m not sure if I’ll get any more time with the sewing machine.  There’s more yard work to do before Friday night.

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others have on their design wall.
