A very beautiful Quilt. Can i ask you, a lot of people are complaining that Februarys blocks are coming up to small, Did you come across this problem when doing yours? im new to quilting and its a bit of a put off to start if its going to waste fabric..
Jugabu answered:
Thank you, Tracey. I love piecing blocks, but I can understand your frustation and concern about wasting fabric. The most important t;hing is accurate cutting and seam allowances. One trick I learned awhile ago for accurate seams was to use Dr. Scholls" moleskin. Measure from your sewing machine needle the seam the seam allowance you want and place the tape there. This is a felt backed tape that you can use to guide your fabic against aknd gives you consistant seams and should help your blocks to come out the same size. The only block I had trouble with in the 2012 class was the paper pieced block. My printer had the scale wrong. However, I used the blocksin the backing of my quilt so they were not wasted. Other uses for off-size blocks are placemats, tote bags, framed art work.
