Photo Challenge: Number

3.5″ Square. Photo: TLClark, 2/14/2020.

A few numbers in the life of a quilter.

Measure twice; cut once. And hold the ruler firmly before making that cut! (Couldn’t take a picture with one hand AND hold the ruler AND use the rotary cutter.)

Posted in response to Tuesday Photo Challenge – Number by Dutch Goes the Photo!

Somehow I never got around to posting for the prior photo challenge, but I took some pictures!! So here’s just a bit of the action required for creating a quilt block using the pink square shown above.

SEW: Sewing machine needle at rest and and then in action. Note that the horizontal screw on the right holds the needle in place so it has go up and down and up and down with the needle.

PRESS: First with fingers, then with iron.
