Here is a picture my mom took while on vacation in Las Vegas. This is a casino floor. I thought it was just beautiful. Do you all ever look at the floor for a cool pattern? Makes me want to quilt something with a fan pattern.
The houses and trees in the previous post are paper pieced. They were fun to do, but then I like to piece with a foundation.
I did not find the bias edges to be a problem on the 1000 pyramids quilt. However, realizing that this could be a problem, I cut and then sewed, cut and sewed, maybe 20 triangles at a time instead of cutting a whole bunch like 200 at a time. Then I put the strips away and do not handle them until I sew one to another. I am just careful because I know this can be a problem.
*****Eureka! I have read the solution to a nagging problem. When sewing on binding it is inevitable that a seam is on the corner. A lady suggested that I cut the binding, make it shorter to change where the seam is, and resew the binding, before continuing on to the corner. WOW!!!! I feel a whole lot smarter and a whole lot dumber at the same time. Why didn't I think of that? My binding life will be soooo changed! *****
