Technique and knowing how to do things properly when piecing is important to me. I’m always reading and practicing new techniques to see which ones work for me, and which make the best finished quilt. I know it sometimes seems like a Catch 22, that I’m a modern quilter who loves improv but also loves accuracy and perfect points, but I don’t think they’re mutually exclusive. If you want to break the rules, it’s best to know what you can break without ruining the integrity and durability of your quilt.
That’s my I’m sharing this video! My friend Cristy Fincher (her blog is here) over at Purple Daisies just posted a fabulous video on how to spin seams over on youtube. In it, she shows how to glue baste and spin seams both, which is a double whammy of excellentness.
It is seriously worth your time to check it out. Please leave Cristy a comment!
