This month we learned how to construct the Solomon’s Puzzle block. Some quilters found that they should cut the strips for the pie shaped piece at 2 5/8″.
Pinning first with the pie shape on top…
and then sewing it with the wedge or “crust” or arch shape on the top…
We also learned how to use the new yo-yo makers, how to use a sewing machine’s ruffle foot. I made these pajamas
and this apron
using both techniques for embellishments.
