Judy made this cute buzzsaw quilt with some fabrics she picked up from Hawaii. It turned out really cute & a nice controlled scrappy for some of us that just can’t do the full on scrappy quilt. 😉 LOVE IT!
Chasing Perfection in your piecework? Then this might be for you. Any tip I can find that helps make piecing more accurate I’m all over. This was posted on The Quilt Show (where you can purchase it) and I wanted to share. Notice when they talk about how pinning can cause distortion? Yes, I agree! Its better than nothing but I think what they’ve developed is way better than pinning! You might only want to do this on special pieces but I can see where it would make corners and just matching up and pressing more accurate. Doing a show quilt? What do you think? I think I’m going to try it. Here’s a link to a you tube video so you can see how it’s done.
Acorn Easy Precision Piecing
Isn’t this a cute baby quilt? Cathy Labrie whipped this up and picked a cute new design called Playful E2E, which looks like water in motion. The thread is white & she provided the batting (Hobbs 80/20 like ??) The backing is really cute too.
***I’m still finishing up some client work. There is more of it, so you’ll still be seeing some posts of quilts pieced by others***
