Canister - Step 2

So I've finally found time to do step 2 for the Canisters!

Once the 4 pieces are quilted, sew the 2 canister pieces into tubes as shown above. I use a generous 1/4" seam.

Then fold all 4 pieces in half and mark the ends with pins. Fold in half the other way and mark again with pins to get the quarter spot on each piece.

Now pin the bottoms onto the tubes matching the quarter spots first and then fill in as needed.

Sew bottoms onto tubes with generous 1/4" seam. I find the walking foot at this point really helps. Waaa-Laaa - you now have 2 tubes with bottoms!

More tomorrow......
