|248 Blue Dresden Plate Blades|
So far the blades have been fun, even though cutting fabric has never been my favorite part of quilt making. Upon request DH made my plastic template for me. With it I can cut 8" strips flip it back and forth a bit and be done in no time. Then it was off to the sewing machine to finish the flat ends into points and once you figure out what they're saying to do that goes nice and fast too. The pressing is a little tedious because ideally the seam on the back of the point should be preciously in line with the center of the blade but after a bit of finagling I determined eyes are making it - eyes can judge just how centered my points are which helped tremendously.
Oh the joy of moving on to the next step. I'm once again a little concerned about sewing in circles but if I don't think about it I'm certain I'll do just fine. Do you have a project that just seems to go your way? Each time I work on the Dresden Blades I'm amazed at how natural it is.
