Been cutting

First off I took some pics of the presser feet and how wide they are. This is not a true 1/4 inch foot . It is a straight stitch foot and there is a difference. This is the foot that came with the machine. It covers the feed dogs and it tracks fine when stitching, but it is 3/8 of and inch if you measure from the needle hole to the outside edge.  

This is the generic foot and it measures 1/4 inch from needle to the outside of the presser foot. So this is a true 1/4 inch presser foot. Hopefully this explains more.  

This is some of the stash I'm slicing up. It is from 2006. Large print and kinda ugly compared to what we see in fabric today. If I cut it up you see that it is a print, but not the big picture of a tropical tone-on-tone fabric. 

This is a 2.5 inch strip from the 44 inch width. It is looking better already.

This is a 2.5 inch cut off of this large print. Looks even different now

This is the 2.5 inch strip turned and ready to be cut into 1 inch and 1.5 inch strips.

Now when it will be cut and sewn into what ever pattern it will still look even more like it wasn't that big ugly print. Look at your large prints differently can increase your ability to make a different look ion your blocks. Chris
