Oh, Aunt Martha! I always wanted one of these quilt kits you used to make. I finally found one on eBay and it quickly became mine.
But while you advertised accuracy in cutting, you were anything but accurate. I took apart the first diamond I tried to piece. It turned out terribly.
I bought a stamp set and hand pieced the next diamond. It took hours, somewhere north of two. It turned out better than the first, but I despaired of ever finishing.
But then……my friends at AccuQuilt came out with the Prairie Star die. I knew I had to have it. I placed my ill cut pieces on the die and ran it through.
I machine pieced with nary a pin, and…….ta daaaaa!
Martha, do you see these points! I didn’t even use pins!
And it didn’t take three hours! Sadly, the hand pieced point will need to be disassembled and the pieces recut with my handy dandy die.
But I will persevere, Aunt Martha. You could learn a thing or two from AccuQuilt .
Have a great day!
