Random Sewing Tip

Once you’ve cut out your fabric (from your pattern), leave the pattern pieces attached until you need to use them.  This way you won’t get confused by random (unmarked) fabric pieces!  You’ll know exactly where No. 7, No.2 or No. 12 Piece is!

Rosy Random Sewing Tip – How to Pin a Strip Quilt

How to pin a strip quilt

When sewing a strip quilt, pin and sew each strip in opposite directions. So begin sewing first strips from left edge, then joon next strip from right edge. This will ensure that your quilt is even down each side edge – rather than getting longer and longer on one edge. Can you see how I’ve pinned in different directions in this pic? Hope so!!! Amy x
