Craftsy Block of the Month 2013 with Laura Nownes »
Type of item: Functional
100% cotton yardage in Art Deco reproduction prints & solids
What was your inspiration?
Just following the excellent instructions in the video.
What are you most proud of?
This was my first experience with partial seaming. I was happy to find it easier than I thought.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
As Laura teaches, measure carefully before cutting and sew consistent scant 1/4 inch seams. One of my fabrics was not wide enough to yield 12 segments of the pieced strips so I had to cut an extra strip, even though I did line up the selvedges at one end. So be sure to have more fabric than you think you'll need.
