Do you already do quilting there? If not, don’t worry, the pattern is not difficult and comes with all the information for cutting and sewing. But we’ll give you some tips right here, stay with us until the end. When choosing fabrics, pay attention to quality. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive fabric in the store, but it should withstand a few washes, keep its color and shape.
If in the pattern you choose very dark colors with light fabrics, wash the dark ones first to remove excess ink, then start cutting. Once dry, iron the fabric to make it smooth and make it easier to mark, cut and sew. The cutting part is very important and several precautions must be taken. When making the markings, do it on the wrong side of the fabric. So even if the scratches don’t come off, it won’t show up in your quilt.
