I wanted to try a machine piecing method I had found somewhere on the internet.
First make the squares like this:
Stitch the two sides.
Pin them together
Stitch as indicated by the red line.
Turn right sides out and adjust then opening.
Press the points to the centre.
All this has been shown before.
Now comes the new part:
Cut out a square that fits the iron pressed square.
Place it in the middle and give the 'envelope' a new press.
Make a few stitches in the centre to hold down the points.
Zig-zag the blocks together.
Next step is to insert the 'glass'.
Crazy for Crazy
I have started embroidery on the navy/pink block.
I wish you all the very best for the few days that remain of 2018. Happy Stitching.
