Rotary cutting, precise piecing and prefect pressing – these three elements are the foundation of the quilt making process. These are pre-requisites of most projects and classes. In this class, you will lear the proper use of the rotary cuter, mat, ad ruler, including safety and maintenance, while cutting strips and geometric shapes quickly and accurately.
An accurate and consistent 1/4″ seam allowance is the key to precise piecing. Every sewing machine and 1/4″ presser foot is different, but with a little set up and practice, you will find your perfect seam allowance in no time. The final element of the patchwork process is perfect pressing (say that three times!). Learn to press your pieced units properly, avoiding puckers and pleats.
