Just like riding a bike…

Or Not.

It took me 30 minutes to get my room sewing room put back together.┬áNothing was where it should have been and I couldn’t even remember which iron I was using for this project (it’s the baby one, fyi). Once I did get it set up, I spent the rest of the time matching fabrics with some success.

TOMORROW WE CUT!

Essentials for fast foundation piecing:

Comfy swivel chair, ironing board at “sitting” height, travel iron that is easy on your hands and shoulders, cutting board and trash can right beside my sewing machine (Janome 6600), add a quarter ruler, and a Gail Garber post card for a straight edge.
