Daley by the Yard asked me to do an improv piecing demo at her grand re-opening next weekend. If you've seen my quilts you know that tiny little pieces and perfect points are more my style so I figured I'd better practice a bit first.
Neptune is one of my most favorite and maniacally hoarded fabric collections so it was perfect for having random little bits to sew together. I just pulled everything out of my scrap bag and started sewing it together until I had a panel the right size for my anchor applique.
Zig Zag quilts that I pieced together for a border.
Bernina wavy stitch (#4) with a stitch length of 4. I found I had to adjust the tension way down to around 1 1/2 but with a little fiddling it was perfect. It was pretty tedious but a couple of movies helped pass the time. Thank goodness for Netflix!!!
