Rotary cutting your patchwork pieces means that the sewing sequence is a little different, as you start with accurate outside edges, as we do for machine piecing, but it does mean you can have lots of pieces ready for sewing on the go, which makes it very sociable and portable. And if you are organised, you can easily take the pieces on holiday with you.
Carolyn shares with us how to make your sewing accurate, first with a sewing line, and then perhaps moving on to just ‘eye balling’ the seam allowance. It is easier than you might think.
Once you have the hang of hand piecing, why not take a look at the Mystery Quilt that Sylvia Critcher did for us, click here to learn more.
