First, rotary cut squares, rectangles and half-square triangles to serve as the building blocks of a pieced alphabet. Join your letters using an easy patchwork technique and pick up tried-and-true tips for handling tricky shapes. Want letters with smooth, fluid curves? Bias tape makes it as easy as ABC! Find out how create fused letters, appliqué them to a block and cover or accent your ends for a professional-level finish. Then, discover Sarah's fun, fast way to hand-appliqué sweet, whimsical letters. Finally, get ready to improvise!
