The light bulb came on again!
I'm going to be teaching a tote bag class next weekend and need to get my sample pieces ready. I decided to cross-hatch the outside pieces. I start out making one line in two of the corners as a starting point, then use the 'little metal thingy' on my walking foot as a guide set at 2.5-inches.
Going along the first side, I was eye-balling the angle to start at when I thought, ' why not put a piece of blue painters tape on the table surface in line with the metal thingy?' That way I can line-up the line I just quilted on the tape and hopefully it will be a little better than eye-balling from a couple of inches away.
Here are some pics if you aren't sure what I'm talking about.
Does anyone else have these light-bulb moments??
