    good tip on sewing strips together.

    This was an interesting video. I never would have thought of putting a pin at the top of each one. Great idea.

    I use to sew opposite ends but I found sewing from the middle out to each end solved the arch problem.
    Got fabric?

    Ahhhhh, so very ummm, educational and I too could watch his tutorials over and over. It's a good thing, too, the drool on my keyboard lets this 66 yr. old lady know she is still very much alive!!!! LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I always leave a piece of thread when I started a new direction. Then I would start sewing from opposite end.

    I don't get it. If you cut your strips across the grain, selvage to selvage, your set of strips will have a bow no matter what. All the extra steps are so unnecessary, if the strips are cut with the grain. A cross grain strips which is 40 to 42 inches will loose control one way or the other and the stretch will give a bad set of strips.

    The same thing happens when border is cut on the cross grain.

    Yes, he is a hunk! I was in hopes when he talked about stripping, that he was really going to do it! I already knew about switching ends for sewing to avoid the arc. I wanted to see some real stripping!

    Did you notice the pin cushion wrapping around his forearm? I have certainly never seen a pin cushion that looked so good!
