Well, this week sure did get away from me! I did have most of the day on Thursday to sew, and decided to make a March table topper for Sara. I have made this Roundabout Schnibble by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. previously and have enjoyed it in my home. I thought Sara would like one as well. My gosh, my machine quilting sure has improved since I bought the Craftsy video by Jacquie Gehring. I got this little topper done in just a few hours and once I bind it, it will go to a new home at my daughter's house.
The sewing on this topper went so darn fast, mostly due to a little tool I tried out with it.
The Folded Corner Clipper. It is great when you have to sew squares onto rectangles.
Position it on your rectangle and clip away. Stack the fabric and trim six at a time.
Trim your squares the same way.
The trimmed units fit together like they were meant to.
Chain piece together and before you know it, your units are all pieced and ready to make into blocks.
This block does have "partial seams", but the explanation as to how to construct them is so simple, you will wonder why you were afraid to make this type of block. It was a fun and easy project and the world has been enriched with one more table topper. lol
Have a great weekend everyone!
