Example text

Please be sure that you are using your iron to do a quilting press on your seams, using no motion at all. When ironing clothing we sometimes slide the iron over the fabric using motions which actually stretch the fabric. In quilting there is no movement of the iron on the fabric, just a lift up and press down motion of the iron, on and off the fabric, with no movement of the iron while in contact with the fabric. Press seams open using only a “lift up & press down” motion of the iron. Follow your quilt’s cutting diagram to make cut number two.

Flora l fabr ic s are a fav orite for bed sized quilt s. The gorgeous backing fabric is complemented by a sashing that matches both the top floral fabrics and the tonal backing. 57 Double Queen Quilt Directions Take your time on a quilt this size, separating the three basic sections into smaller and manageable sections: • Separate the cuts, doing one or two cuts at a time • Layering, smoothing and pinning • Use one thread a day, in two or three places on each square, for the quilting • Cutting the binding and sashing strips and For your sashing follow the cutting diagram for a larger sized quilt.

32 The rest of the cuts in your quilt design Follow this same process for all the cuts marked on your drawing. The more cuts your design has, the more you “choose” over which fabrics get re-pieced together to reform a square. Spend a little more time after each cut in re-matching the fabric pieces, balancing colors and light and dark fabrics. Continue to chain piece your squares after each cut, and to press seams open. Remember that the seams in the middle of the squares are not supposed to align and the more that you cut and re-sew, the more ragged and uneven the edges of your square become – that’s exactly the look we are going for!
