SOME QUILTING TIPS AND TRICKS (from the Crafty Quilter)

  • Precise cutting is essential
  • Precise seams are a must so that when you go to assemble your quilt everything will match up just right and will eliminate frustration
  • Starch your fabric before you cut (but don't starch precuts).  Starching will give you a more accurate cut and your piecing will be more accurate
  • Don't Wing It - It may take a little extra time to use pins but you won't regret it.  Pinning before you sew will give you more accurate seams by keeping your edges even
  • Your seam ripper can be your best friend so don't be afraid to use it
  • Trim each subunit to the correct size for accurate assembly
  • Press, Press, and Press all of your seams (whether open or to the side) and use a clapper to make them really flat
  • Make sure your seams meet accurately and pin before you sew

We still have all of our seasonal (Hallowee, Fall, and Christmas) items on sale at 40% off.  These include, fabric, patterns, and kits.

 

Roxanne and I wish you a very Happy, Healthy, and Blessed New Year!  We can't wait to see all of you in 2024 and we thank you for your suppor since we opened!
