I started a new project yesterday. I got out those pretty Garden Notes fabrics by Kathy Schmidt and got busy cutting out strips for "Buzz Saw". I think the blocks will go pretty fast, particularly if I concentrate on making the units of one size all at one time. I can chain piece and crank those little things right out.
I could not bear the idea of drawing lines on all the units, so I got out the Folded Corner Clipper ruler again. For now it is working fine. I thought about getting out Lori Holt's Seams Sew Easy seam guide, but I hate the way it positions on my sewing surface. You use these sticky dots that leave an icky residue that collects lint and is a real pain. The sticky dots eventually stop holding the guide in place and you are left with gooey, linty sticky circles on your sewing surface. I just ordered another seam guide called Clearly Perfect Angles that is supposed to "cling" to the sewing surface, so maybe I will like that better.
I used to use a seam guide called The Angler 2, but that doesn't seem to be available any more. And with that one, I had to use blue painter's tape to attach it to my sewing surface! I like the idea of one that "clings". The new one I ordered is supposed to come this weekend, so I will report back on how it is working.
What is your experience with these seam guides that help you sew corner to corner without having to mark your fabric? Do you have a favorite brand? They are a real timesaver.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
