Turkey Tracks: March 5, 2020
Sugaridoo QAL: Row 9, Delta
I am making two versions of this QAL: one in the solid rainbow fabrics (Kona) and one in, hopefully, Cotton+Steel from the fabrics I have on hand.
For the solid version, I printed out patterns on newsprint and foundation pieced the blocks, which then got sewed into the row. The block is BIG, so sections needed to be taped to make the pattern. And, afterwards, the paper had to be pulled out, which is always a pain. But the blocks are perfect—with sewing room above all the points.
The printed fabric row I made with the freezer paper method, which I love. BUT, I think I am not sewing quite close enough to the folded line and that might account for some points being a bit close to the edge.
I also moved the highlight piece (grey, blue) away from the right hand edge, partial block to the block next to it. Given the overall schema, this position will not impact other highlighted blocks in the quilt.
April will be here before I know it.
