When I'm wrong -

I say I'm wrong -

And I am/was WRONG - ;))

Yesterday I posted about "tearing" as opposed to "cutting" strips and ended with -

BOB says - if you do decide to "trim" it -
You might as well just "cut" it next time - LOL - ;))
Which led my friend - Gene Black - to leave the following comment -
I will respectfully disagree with BOB's statement
"BOB says - if you do decide to "trim" it -You might as well just "cut" it next time"
For really long strips tearing them and then a light trim to get rid of the fuzzy's still results in an on grain strip where just cutting can have bobbles and "funny angles" if you aren't really careful folding the fabric.

I confess to being the friend who asked.

I replied -
Your disagreement is duly noted - and you're right - I forgot about the "careful folding" to prevent the dreaded "V" fold!!

A good "tear" and a "light trim to get rid of the fuzzy's" will certainly get the job done - ;))

BOB needs a good friend -

To disagree with her every once in a while -

To keep her from getting a little too cocky - ;))

Thanks, Gene - for being a good friend!! - ;))

Then - after getting my attitude adjusted - LOL -

I played with sewing the borders on the RED Squirrel - ;))

The colors on the website - HERE - are much more "true" than those above -

But still -

This is one GORGEOUS quilt!! - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

If I don't tear the fabric, I measure and mark in with a pencil and cut on the line. In the past, I have messed up too many times trying to use a rotary cutter ... having the ruler slide or not getting the folds exact.
Your squirrel is very showy. I think I heard it saying it wanted to go to a show.

Such a beauty! Interested in knowing how this one will be quilted.

Gene Black said...

Oh MY Goodness! That is gorgeous! I love it.
You can trust that I will disagree if I think I am right. If you prove me wrong, though, I will concede.
