Because I wanted a break from cutting thousands of little kit quilt pieces, yesterday I decided to try some small crazy quilt blocks. In the past, I have used top stitching on my crazy blocks, because I enjoy making curved and odd shaped pieces. I do like the look of more weird shapes, but the top stitching doesn’t look nearly as nice as the hidden seam most people use in these foundation pieced blocks. Too bad I don’t have a cute blanket stitch on either of my old Berninas.
Anyway, this time I tried using the stitch and flip method (not sure if that’s the right term). It took some getting used to, but I finally think I have the hang of it. Still, I wish I could do curves.
