...But Persistence Equals ProgressThe paper-pieced borders for my Pickle Dish quilt are coming along. Slowly. These strips are about 15" and each will need to be 60", so I'm only a fourth of the way along.
Paper piecing these borders is effective, but I've made so many mistakes that I've had to rip almost as much as I've sewn. Wrong side up to start. Then several times I've added the next wedge wide ends together. So many times that I now have a note on my sewing machine to remind me, the wide end needs to line up with the narrow end of the previous wedge.
Ripping out mistakes from paper piecing is tedious. The easiest way I've found is to use a very sharp surgical blade type seam ripper and just touch it to the threads between the paper and the fabric, peeling the fabric away from the paper as you go.
Hopefully I can make some more progress on these borders this week. With much less ripping.
