Project

February BOM 2013

What are you most proud of? This was my first experience with partial seaming. I was happy to find it easier than I thought. What advice would you give someone starting this project? As Laura teaches, measure carefully before cutting and sew consistent scant 1/4 inch seams. One of my fabrics was not wide enough to yield 12 segments of the pieced strips so I had to cut an extra strip, even though I did line up the selvedges at one end. So be sure to have more fabric than you think you'll need.
