I'm going to have to inform my special friend about the SEX in quilting too! What does that stand for anyway?

MNnancy:
in a workshop with Bonnie Hunter,  she showed us that if you take 2 of your strips,  one face down and one face up, then lock the middle seam together the way you do when you are sewing two sets of squares together, this will keep them from shifting when you cut them

expain lock the middle seam together the way you do when sewing squares together

It was actually Donna who posted this tip, but I believe she means nestling the seams together so that they don't shift while you're cutting.  Here's a photo I found on Google.

  Ok, I understand when you have seams but when sewing strips, I'm not able to get a visual on what you mean

Nana,

I've sewn & cut all my pieces and ended up with 9 light strips left from my 72, is that correct or did I cut too many?

Having fun...thank you, Lisa C

Hello ladies,

Looks like the scant 1/4 inch has been interesting.

I was in the hospital for 6 days and all I could think about was the step 2 instructions coming out last friday and worry about getting behind. LOL does this mean I'm obsessive? I'm going to tackle sewing my strips toghether today. I hope to get them done. Leaving for a mini vacation with my daughter and family Thurs, back Sunday. Can't wait to check out the quilt shop in East Grand Forks! :)

What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

Very funny.  I can see my DH's expression now.   Where are you going?  To the store for SEX!  Perhaps the LQS should put up a sign, "get your SEX here!"  

now I never will be able to enter a quilt shop without thinking about SEX.

Ok, I understand when you have seams but when sewing strips, I'm not able to get a visual on what you mean. 

Well, I'm on the cutting step now, and I can't nest/lock seams when cutting the 2" squares of the dark,light,dark because their seams aren't going opposite directions even if I lay one face up and one face down.

This does work, however, for the 1" cuts if you layer a dark,light,dark with a light,dark,light because their seams go opposite directions and they will nest.

The cutting isn't difficult using the June Tailer Shape Cut slotted tool whichever way you stack them.  The sewing & pressing is the time-consuming part of step 2.

Ha, ha!  I just noticed something funny...

Look at the colors I'm using in MQ8, and look at MQ5 that I'm holding in my avatar pic.  Do I like red and cream, or what?
