I don’t know about you, but when I have to un-sew something – I find it a very frustrating task. It’s seems counter productive and it puts me off my schedule.
When I’m piecing, I’m a pinner by nature so that things stay lined up including edges and seam intersections. Recently I have found that if I really want to see how it’s going to look, I use a basting stitch. If you don’t have a basting stitch, it’s a straight stitch set to the longest possible length. On my machine, the longest length for a straight stitch is 6 mm, but other machines may vary. Whether satisfied or not, the basting stitch comes out real easy and saves me all that un-sewing and frustration. That allows me more time to work on new projects!
