Well, I found some time to try out the new curve master foot and I didn't do too bad. The main issue that I had was trying to figure out where the fabric edges were supposed to go. If I place the edges in the center lip, then there is a ton of foot off to the right. I can't understand why it's so wide if you only use to the center part? One of the many sewing mysteries :-)
After reviewing the videos on the web, I remembered to keep the top fabric separated and up high when sewing. It worked pretty well. I think I had an issue with the AccuQuilt fabric cutting. I just threw some scrap fabric on the form and I think the white fabric was thinner in some placed when folded. They came out different sizes. I know there is some talk of this issue but I'm hoping it was my mistake because they were pretty off.
The other issue I had was that I tried to piece using the curve master foot. Do not try this at home. What a mess. I was not able to sew a straight line at all. Thus, all my mismatched corners and seams. That's a big lesson learned for me. I'm still encouraged by the results so, I'll try more in the future.
Yesterday, we took a trip to Lancaster. I'm about 40 minutes away. Since we are both on vacation for this week and next, a day trip was planned for Shady Maple buffet and QVC outlet shopping. Can you believe that I was in Lancaster and did not buy a stitch of fabric? What's up with that? Well, it was a very very very rainy day. I was too lazy to walk in the rain so we skipped the quilt shops. Yep, save them for another day. However, we did get some great scenery photos. Here's a favorite from a distance.
Thanks for stopping by!
