Sew & Tell Friday
Actually, I finished the top in December, back when I thought I'd have all sorts of stuff done at Christmas. This ORBC Quilt Along (wonky log cabins with Quilt Dad) was lots of fun. Once I got over trimming away fabric to make it wonky (seemed wasteful, but there are ways to be less so), it was a lot of fun to be using some fabric I'd purchased a year before and not made much progress with. As usual, it is much more vibrant in real life--finally had light outside and who knows what happened to my settings :)
A couple of tips with this one:
- cut sashing strips parallel to the selvedge (instead of width of fabric) for less stretch as you sew--these went on beautifully
- tip your sewing machine toward you--I read somewhere to place rubber door stop wedges at the back--you can really see where the needle works so much better!

- Spring is truly on it's way--today we have an average temperature for the first time in 3 months!
- Beautiful views when the sun comes out even if I don't know how to use my camera
