Piecing binding

Quilt Police, this time you are right! This binding must have the seam allowances pressed open!

Oilcloth Shopping Bag

I was so anxious to sew with oilcloth! After so many faux leather bags, it was nice to try something new. I chose a simple pattern (my new shopping bag)  and it was the best choice.

So how is this oilcloth? Stiff! You wouldn't say this when you touch it, but when I had to turn the bag from one side to the other, I struggled a little!

I stitched with the walking foot; the oilcloth slides under the foot with more ease than the faux leather. Look at the beautiful, long stitches.

This oilcloth is not the easiest material to sew with, but the designs are wonderful, it worth the effort to sew at least one small and simple project.

Can't wait to use it!

Next time I will try a pouch, or maybe a wallet.

I still want to buy and try the laminate cotton made by the quilting fabric manufacturers. I am curious to compare them.

Fun accessory for my sewing machine

Do you have this accessory for your sewing machine? Do you use it?
It allows you to stitch at the desired distance from a previous stitching. It's great for echo quilting.

I have a Pfaff machine and this is called edge/quilting guide.

It's very easy to attach it to the machine.

And stitching lines spaced at 1'' (or even more) saves you time!

And if you want to add some free motion quilting, it's easy to do it in between the lines.

Happy sewing week,
Geta

Thank you for your comments on my previous post. The larger piece will be a quilt and the two smaller pieces will be pillows.
