Chasing Perfection?

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

Duck, Duck, Duck…..goose!

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***
