Quilters all over the world are trying to win an Accuquilt Go! Fabric cutter and one way is to sign up for their newsletter and hope you get lucky in a monthly draw (thanks to IHAN Kelly for this and other opportunities). While signing up I found their great "Are You Really A Dedicated Quilter?" and thought I'd share it with you.
Many thanks to everyone who responded to my review of the Clover Fork Pins, particularly Leeann who lives in wonderful Whangarei in NZ and wrote,
If you imagine that your seam line is drawn on the fabric. You need to pin so that pin goes in before the line, and comes out past the line. This way the place you are going to sew can't move. It looks to me in your pictures that your pins go in and come up before the seam line. This is probably why some are off. When I learned to do this my piecing improved a lot. I haven't used these pins, I just use 2 pins, one each side. They look good though, I may have to try them. :-)
No sewing for me today, I'm off to do a little gentle weeding (I usually sit on the ground to do it to make the most of my energy!) while the sun is shining here in Lincolnshire. Have a great Bank Holiday Monday (Memorial Day if you are one of my US blogging friends).
