Having recently seen Sally Collins teaching a lesson on precision piecing on "The Quilt Show" website (www.thequiltshow.com). I was inspired to try her method. At times, those of us who have been quilting and sewing for many years, will use certain short cuts and speed sewing techniques to get a project done a little faster. Although the goal is always to make the best product we can, sometimes precision is sacrificed for speed. Watching Sally was a reminder that this should never be an option. Striving for the best quality is never a waste of time, and accuracy is always worth the extra effort and time.
|Using Sally's method, I was able to make a very accurate and consistent 1/4 inch strips. It takes precision cutting, precision stitching and precision pressing, all of which Sally addresses in the program that I watched.|
