Still Working on Siggy Blocks

Stacked up and almost ready to put together.

Drawing the cutting and sewing lines on each square


Chain sewing together.

Clipping apart

Cutting.

Ironing flat.

My embroidery machine is doing all of this work.
I love it.
I try to get 2 on each sheet before cutting.

I am still working on siggy blocks. I am trying to do all of the cutting and embroidering and then I will be putting them together. The first few that I did, I worked on 1 at a time. This will be much faster. I am amazed how much I am learning, not only in using my rulers & chain sewing, but my new sewing machine also. I am having a ball. I joined this International Signature Block Swap over at my friend Connie's blog. Her blog is so amazing. I love seeing all of her quilts and goodies. This is my first swap that I have ever done. I need to make 60 of these siggy's and then I will receive the same amount of siggys from all over the world. I can't wait. I also joined another swap over at Rhondas blog. This is a dish towel & hotpad swap. If you have never checked her out, you need to. She lives a very simple life and works hard. She teaches a lot on her blog. All of these blogs amaze me. If I let myself I could stay on the computer all day but I limit my time to right before bed except for checking my email and checking off my chores done in my sidebar. Hopefully next time I post about my siggy blocks they will be finished.

You are moving right along there! Can you tell me where to get one of those rulers? I've not seen one and it looks very handy.

You're moving right along and things are looking great. I'm still making my siggy blocks too. I have many more to go because I'm in both swaps.
