Sewing with CraftOptics is a Great Solution for the Eyes!

Have you see the WOW package from CraftOptics?

I met Jeff Caplan from CraftOptics a few years ago in Puyallup, his booth was around the corner from Kai Scissors.   I was intrigued by the glasses and loved hearing the comments that people would say after trying them on.  It wasn’t until last year at Houston Quilt Fest that I had a chance to try these fabulous glasses myself.  Here is a recent interview with Jeff and an explanation how these glasses work.

Quick Table Runner Instructions

Fabric Requirements:

a. Center fabric: Sew together seven of the quilted blocks
made in the 7 7/8 x 14 in hoop. Five of the blocks will have
the applique design and the two ends will be background fill
only. Stitch the blocks together with a ¼ seam allowance so
that you have 1 long piece approximately 54 in long x 14 in
wide. Trim to approximately 12.5 in wide.
(Alternatively you can cut 1 at 12.5 in X 54 in and embellish
later with HTV, etc.)
b. Border/Back fabric: Cut 1 at 24 in x 54 in

Construction:

a. Sew the center fabric to the border/back fabric on both
sides, right sides together to make a long tube. Trim the
ends so that everything is the same length.
b. Turn right sides out and press, keeping the border sections
evenly matched on both sides of the center panel.
c. Fold fabric tube in half, right sides together and stitch
together on each end.
d. Turn corners out to reveal a finished triangle shape at each
end.
e. If not using quilt blocks for the center panel, embellish as
desired.
