How To Make Perfect Blocks Everytime

 

 

Perfect blocks and strips aren’t created by accident.

It starts with attention to detail to form great skills. It takes precise actions to form great skills so be patient with yourself!

You can strive for perfection as you build a block with precise stitching, perfect cutting of pieces, aligning units with exact pinning, but it can still end up slightly off square.

Sometimes its just a slightly stretched fabric or an off angled seam.

    My goodness! If I had to follow all those rules I would be afraid to do any sewing. Good thing I just sew for the family.

    An excellent demo, I suggest these things to the ladies in my sewing classes all the time with the exception of pressing the seams open. Usually I do not recommend this.

    Very nice, But I can’t bring myself to press those seams open! I’d rather “nest”. Will surely try the shorter stitch length.:)

    Very interesting fur a beginner -the patterns I have looked at always say to press tqge seams toward the darker fabric. This wsy seems more logical.

    I was told to always press the seams toward the darker side because it was stronger .not sure pressing them open would help when you do stitch in the ditch. Would only be sewing the threads

    lol I guess I talk in quilting for nothing, most of everything she shows I have said. Every quilter is different, I do not open my seams exception being lemoyne star, wack’n stack etc., these have a lot seams that meet in the middle and make it bulky. I never use sizing as it makes it difficult to hand quilt.

    I press seams to the side. I was taught that if you press them open it weakens the seam. As long as you are consistent with the method you use it should be fine.

    Janice Stock do you recommend ironing the seams open to make it better to long arm quilt?

    I would/will never press my quilt seams open. It makes the seam too weak.
