This 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.
It uses an adding machine tape for the stabilizer. The tape is easy to remove when sewing is finished.
Flip and sew scraps onto the adding machine tape. Make sure that they fill the whole tape plus a little.
This is the back side of the tape.
Place a rotary cutting ruler on the edge and trim sides away.
When 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.
