Sew Awesome Quilting Tip!
We found this awesome tip from Instagram user Brenda Moore. She posted, “And this is why color catchers are a miraculous invention! They’re even bluer in person and the white on the quilt is snow white.” @eroomkb

 

 

Best tip ever that I’ve had for quilters? Label solids on the selvage with a sharpie so you don’t mix them up. @jaybirdquilts

    Small Blade Works Best
    If you plan to rotary cut curved pieces with acrylic templates, invest in a small-blade rotary cutter. You’ll find the smaller blade handles much better around the curves, which is a must for accuracy. Also note that curved cuts may not heal themselves on your cutting mat, so you may need to reserve a cutting mat specifically for curved cutting and save your best mat for all other rotary cutting.
    OR: Rotary cut the basic square shapes first,
    then use the template to trace the curve and cut out that section with scissors.

    Store Fusible Web Flat
    Save leftover paper-backed fusible web
    in a large zipper storage bag. It helps to not dry out so fast. Cut a piece of card stock about the size of the bag and slip in flat pieces of
    fusible web on top. The card stock keeps it flat and ready to use.
