    I sew mine on after the binding. I prefer not have all that bulk, and I like it a tad lower on the quilt so the dowel or whatever never will show above the quilt.

  5. Pre-cuts

    by , 04-15-2011 at 05:19 PM
    I don't wash charms, jelly rolls etc. When I am finished with a project I put Shout Color Catchers in the wash with it.
    They work great!
    If I think something is sure to bleed I will soak it in a basin first.

    I'll wash all the reds together, even with a color catching sheet, the reds could still bleed enough to affect the other colors

    Thank you! The pattern is not hard at all. Just sew strips.

  10. adjustment for inaccurate strips

    by , 04-01-2011 at 02:23 PM
    Not all 2-1/2" strips are exactly 2-1/2". Ballipops are hand cut inBali so there is some variations there.

    Here's something I found that assures us 2-1/2" strips when sewn.

    When sewing two strips together, rather than measuring 1/4" to the right of the needle position, I measure 2-1/4" to the left of the needle. A piece of blue painter's tape is placed along the left edge of the 2-1/4".

    The fabric strips are positioned right ...
