I took a couple of notes and pics to share with you. ( and also as a future reference for my self!)
A couple things to note:
- I tested my cutting width from knife edge to left needle and found the perfect setting for me that is a scant 1/4 inch. On my evolution when using a 4 thread overlock stitch it should be set to M. I do not use the knife to cut, just trim any stray hairs and as a guide.
- I put on the clear foot. Really helped to see when I was piecing the smaller pieces.
- I only finger pressed in between chain piecing. Partly due to me wanting to be faster (laziness :) and secondly because pressing bias grain cut pieces can distort them if not careful.
I am hoping to get the last set of blocks done tonight and then onto the tedious trimming of the blocks and then more fun of sewing them together!
*** and yes... I finally figured out how to make my pictures bigger form my iPad app!
