Aiming for Accuracy Booklet

from Mishka's Playground
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Aiming for Accuracy Booklet
Aiming for Accuracy Booklet Aiming for Accuracy
Aiming for Accuracy Booklet Aiming for Accuracy
Aiming for Accuracy Booklet Aiming for Accuracy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Accurately sew a 1/4" seam allowance
  • Accurate cutting

Pattern Description:

Step up your quilting to the next level with the Aiming for Accuracy Booklet. This booklet contains:

* 17 comprehensive lessons, with full colour photos, to complete the quilt top.
* Recommended products and tips for improving quilting accuracy.
* Tutorials for creating half-square, quarter-square and split quarter-square triangles.
* Finishing up ideas including choosing batting, basting, quilting and binding.
* Blank colour charts to assist in planning the quilt.
* Links to various tutorials, resources and videos for further information.

Additional notes on fabric requirements:

Assorted prints: The 6 yards represents 24 fat quarters which will give you a good variety of prints to use. You will have some leftovers, but they can be used for the quilt back, scrappy border squares and/or binding. You should be able to get by with only 20 fat quarters, but you'll want to be careful when cutting.

Contrasting fabric: I'm using black for my version of the quilt shown in the lessons. However, I also completed a test version with 1930s prints where I used white. You need a good contrasting fabric so that the design stands out.

Backing fabric: The yardage is based on having a middle scrappy strip that is approximately 10" in height.


  • 6 yards of assorted prints
  • 3 yards of contrasting fabric
  • 3/8 yard for border squares or sixty-four (64) scrappy patches cut at 2.5"
  • 5/8 yard for binding (with a 2.5" cut width)
  • 4 yards for backing
  • 66" x 90" batting (allows for 4" extra on each side)

You Will Also Need:

  • General sewing and quilting supplies.
