Yes weird title for the post huh – years ago when I was helping out at the County Fair for a couple years running I was able to listen in on the judges and hear their comments. One thing they complained about on a couple quilt tops to be judged – entered as finished tops was that several had “twisted sisters” on them. I hadn’t a clue what they were talking about until I glanced over to see what they were looking at – these little intersections at the seams – sometimes – ok – often when I machine sewing the seam facing down gets twisted as I am sewing through – even though it is pinned! When I hand piece I do not have this trouble at all of course – only machine piecing. How do you all prevent this from happening and do you always go back and fix it? I must say I don’t bother to – now if I was entering into a show I would but I’m not interested in entering a show so I just press and don’t worry about it.
Have you all heard that term “twisted sisters” or do you call it something else? Weird term I thought.
I have worked off and on today on the little quilt and I’m half way done!! And I got a little hand quilting done on Joseph’s Coat as well. Yes I skipped the fitness center today – after the dentist appointment I just didn’t feel quite right – I have a horrible jaw and it was aching a lot which in turn gave me a bit of a headache and then the Novocain to make my jaw numb always seems to mess up my sinus’s so I stayed home.
Now it is time to get some muffins baked – I love a homemade muffin for breakfast in the morning and I have some pumpkin, walnuts and raisins to do the job —
