So lately I have been trying to work on making small changes to improve the accuracy and quality of my quilts. One area in which I need a little work is on mitered corners; most of them time they are nice and sharp, but sometimes they end up a little wonky and I wasn't sure why.
this? Basically when you are sewing on the binding you stop a quarter inch from the edge of the corner (or whatever your seam allowance is) and then sew a diagonal line into the corner. I'm sure that makes no sense so you can read much better directions with a diagram here. It really worked!
Also yesterday, I found a very exciting magazine in the mail. The latest issue of Quilty showed up and inside was a quilt that I made last year using Nordika. So fun and exciting! These should be available soon.
The Fat Quarter Shop has 20% off gift certificates. Quilt Market is coming up and there are going to be lots of new collections released that I will be adding to my wish list. This is a great way to get 20% off of them when they are released.
Lark Cottons has Dreamin Vintage newly in stock. This collection is inspired by vintage sheets and is so sweet.
