Tips and Tricks To Make A Beautiful Quilt
Creating a quilt is a great hobby. In addition, a quilt can be passed down through generations. It instils the altruistic feeling of nostalgia, as each touch is full of the history of those who had it before. The process of quilting is quite simple and rather easy to learn. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you make a quilt that you and your loved ones can enjoy.
Be sure to cut an exact direct edge to measure when you begin cutting strips of material, and be certain that your ruler is aligned with the folded rim of the fabric so that the fold is without a V effect.
Always iron seams flat after stitching prior to pressing the seam section to one side, this will avert puckering.
When coordinating seams be sure that the seams are pressed in reverse direction, the seam sections will harmonize correctly.
When machine quilting even lines, be sure to utilize a walking foot. This will prevent any twisting and puckering of the fabric.
Whenever you make uninterrupted binding, be sure to sew the pieces together on the bias and not vertical.
