So while I was away from the computer I got all these nine patches sewn together. They are for the swap I am doing over at Barb's blog. Even though the swap is closed check out her tutorial, it is the only way to make a bunch of nine patches in a short amount of time and they are very accurate. I made a total of 100.
No small pieces, strip piecing.
Chain sewing makes it all go fast. It's kind of addictive you just want to keep making them!
When you use this technique you get 2 patches that have opposite colors. I now wish I had made an extra set for myself using my fabrics. I thought of that at the very end when I had ten left to make.
The break from the computer was nice, I didn't even look at the emails on my phone, I thought I would be tempted. I did check on Saturday night because I got a new phone and was playing with it, but only one. I found I did not miss it as much as I thought I would.
I did get a lot of sewing done but now I have a ton of blogs to catch up on! Have you ever given up the computer for any length of time? How did it make you feel?
