Some more of my progress with the table runner
I bought some sets of the Fine Line Rulers from Carol Olsen of Accents in Design....and have been learning how to use them on my DSM.
I actually forgot to use them for most of these corner blocks.
I dont usually use that foot, and find the closed toe darning foot works best.
Sometimes it's difficult to see where I am going, and it's hard to learn that I need to allow for the 1/4" that the sewing foot takes up. If you look closely at the corner, you can see where I did the lines freehand ... thinking to be a bit quicker...shouldnt have, but there you are.
I have drawn these corners in, and they are the same design that I have used in the corners of the blocks with the circles in.
Here is the completed corner..you can see the difference that using the ruler makes.
I just need practice that a lot - and remember I have these great rulers!
I am using the 6" cc ruler to go around the border with and hope to sort some feathers in the inside cuve which you can see in this photo also...and do some 'piano' quilting on the rest of the border...
I am going to need to work out how it fits in, but I love a challenge.
I still have the 'fillers' to put in the white square blocks - and that will take some time too.
Back to my sewing now.
