I spent two marathon sewing days while my daughter was in Kidz Camp piecing together the 480 parallelograms in Zipper in Time into 32 rows. It took FOREVER. It was finicky and I needed to do lots of pressing (one of my least favourite quilting tasks). But, after much perseverance, I had a delicious hanger of rows ready to sew together. Hooray!
|32 rows, pressed and waiting|
|The all-important sticky notes to make sure I put it together in the right order!|
|Sewing the rows together involves lots of pins and very slow and precise pressing open of the seams. I am HATING this step in particular. I may give up and just press the seams to the side. What do you think? Bad idea?|
|It looks awesome as it is shaping up, though!|
Your thoughts on pressing open seams?
