Mending Ways

If you have a little Stitch Witchery and some time, you can save a favorite pair of jeans. This is how I do it:

You folks that have a zigzag can do even better!

After sending some winged geese units from my Orca Bay down to Swooze in Texas, I needed to make some more of them. Today was back to Step 4 for the red string blocks. That pleased me because I had cut so many extra red strings.
And I'm still chugging along on making sets of the Civil War Criss Cross Blocks, too. Here is a Bonnie Blue Civil War black paisley with the Moda Primitive Muslin Piecrust in a strip set ready to be subcut.

The Moda Piecrust is a perfect match for the off white paisley design. It looks so olde timey! These are going into a quilt called Across The Spectrum from McCall's Jan/Feb 2011 by Sherri Bain Driver. So different from my boisterous Orca Bay colors.

Hi Vic, What a coincidence, I've been using stitch witchery for years on my DS jeans. Great minds think alike. :-)

Last year was my first Bonnie mystery and having not a clue I cut twice the amount of strings I I have on the working wall what I'm calling Dog's Dinner...the backing for my grey Cotton Boll top :)
All the best, Sharyn in Kalama
