Gaa – Barge

IMG_2204This week’s Gaa – Barge is a very small piece.  It is only 9 1/2″ x 10″.  The pattern is called Chinese Coins and is so very easy to make.  It is made from very small scraps.

 

IMG_2205It uses an adding machine tape for the stabilizer.  The tape is easy to remove when sewing is finished.

IMG_2206Flip and sew scraps onto the adding machine tape.  Make sure that they fill the whole tape plus a little.

 

 

IMG_2208This is the back side of the tape.

 

 

IMG_2209Place a rotary cutting ruler on the edge and trim sides away.

IMG_2211When both sides are trimmed, the strip is straight and even.  Remove tape and insert strip between sashing.  Add a border.

 

 

Quilt  as desired or, using built in embroidery stitches on the machine, cover each seam,  It is a quick and easy quilt.

Now that I look at this little quilt, I may make a full size quilt from my basket of mile a minute scraps.  If I sew on the tape for just a few minutes a day, I can have another quilt top without much effort for my UFO pile.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
