There are several styles of Ruching. When most people hear Ruching, they think of the traditional zig zag style made with ribbon, but Ruching can be done with all types of fabrics, laces and other trims. In this photo I have a prepared strip (basted and marked with the scallop stitching line using the Piecing Pals Coin Ruching Guide), a strip that has been stitched and gathered and a flower formed from a gathered strip.
Not one inch of space to work.
A clean workspace…now there is room to work and show you some of the fun things I am doing.
Two goals for today:
1. Clear off my cutting table
2. Learn how to size pictures for WordPress, so I can show you the before and after.
By following my own advice, of keeping projects and tools handy to work on in bits of time, I have managed to finish a number of projects, in between writing sessions for my new book. There remains several piles of things to put away, a couple of Trunk Shows to ship out and project leftovers hogging my work space. Today it goes!
Sizing photos for WordPress is kind of a mystery, but it will be solved today. Meanwhile, you may visit laurassagecountryquilts on Facebook to see a little bit of what I and my little helper Punkin have been up to.
How do you organize your applique projects to optimize quilting time? How do you keep your quilting space organized?
