Piecing Winding Ways Blocks
Today turned out to be a rainy, dull and dreary day and it was a perfect day to sew. I added six more winding ways blocks to the two I had made previously.
I was asked if I am hand-piecing my winding ways blocks and even though I think they would be a great block to hand piece I am doing mine by machine. These blocks are not difficult to sew at all because I have some help with keeping the pieces aligned. I do sew them at a slower speed and with more care and I use plenty of pins.
My sister and I cut them using her Go Studio and the die cuts the pieces and leaves notches in the seam allowance for matching them together. I think that really does help a lot. If you are making your own templates I would suggest making them with notches too.
