Piecing Quilt Blocks



Quilting is a Precise Art Form
Quilting is a popular means of expressing creativity.  It requires precision in cutting and stitching in order for the finished product to lay flat and look professional.  Below are some basic guidelines for successfully sewing a flat quilt.
  • Learn to cut and measure with a rotary cutter, matt board and rulers.  These items assure more accuracy than scissors, and save you time.
  • 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Mark your machine, move your needle, purchase a new presser foot, do whatever you need to do to come up with an exact seam allowance.  Imperative for pattern pieces to fit together properly.
  • Do not backstitch, as this will create 'hard spots' in your seams, making it difficult to sew over.  To eliminate the ends of the seams loosening, I reduce my stitch length to 2.0. 
  • Press the entire seam allowance in one direction to add strength to the seam.  I always press toward the darker fabric to prevent the seam from showing through to the topside of the lighter fabric.
  • Trim off excess tail ends of seam allowances if you are sewing angles together, to eliminate bulk and make stitching easier.
  • Press as you sew;  Never sew or join another piece over an unpressed seam.
  •  "Square" you fabric as you go.  It is important to maintain the proper size and shape of each piece so everything will fit together properly in the  end.
Following these techniques will make learning how to sew a quilt a success!
