When I used them i found it a perfect tool for machine piecing.
So when I started machine piecing my Union Station some weeks ago I used them to make perfect stars and hour- glass blocks. When I ordered some more packages I proposed to Mary to do a giveaway on my blog because i am really very enthousiastic about this sewing tool.
What are Stitching Lines:
It's a paper stitching product that makes sewing your half-square triangles, flying geese squares and snowball corners fast, easy and accurate.
How does it work.
When you want to make hourglass blocks , cut the papers 1/4 inch shorter than the diagonal of your two squares. Place the paper with the dark line centered on the diagonal, like here.
You sew on the dotted line 1/4 inch from either side of the center line.
Tear away paper on both sides and paper in the middle and then cut your squares.
You repeat these steps to make your hourglass blocks.
On this video you can see how it works.
Mary from Marin & Colusa gave me two packages for this giveaway. So two of you could receive the Stitching Lines.
And because I have 200 followers now!! I also give away one of my handknitted shawls.
What do you need to do to win one of these three prices. It's very easy: you only need to leave a comment here, be sure that I can reach you. I will draw the winners next sunday. I will ship all over the world.
Good luck .
