Sewing the Sandwich Squares
Step two is fun, but can take a bit of time. I am an all or nothing sewer, so unless I can finish a whole process at one time, I don't start it. It does make it easier now that I have a designated sewing area, not the kitchen table, but I still don't like to have fabric all over the place.
*Update* I asked some other rag quilters on Etsy which thread they use, and they said 100% cotton Coats and Clark Machine Quilting Thread, not the cotton covered polyester I use. I use Coats and Clark also, but I was using the Hand Quilting Thread. With that endorsement, I may switch.
When you are done, you can bag or box up the squares for another time, day, month, year. By now I am usually shocked at the time and the house is needing some TLC. I clean up all the threads on the floor, put my tools away, reintroduce myself to my husband and dog, rehydrate and STRETCH.
Next step will be the layout, my very favorite part of this whole process.
