Sewing Tips from Reva: Tips for Quilt Success

1) When beginning a new project, piece a trial block to make sure that the finished block ends up the size that is intended. This also helps by giving you a good visualisation of how the colors will work together.

2) Use quilting and piecing feet that are made for your machine. This will increase the accuracy of the piecing and be much easier for you to work with. Nothing wrong with enjoying both the process and the end result.

3) Before quilting your project (stitching all three layers together) test and practice the stitching that you are planning. Use scraps of the same fabrics as are used in the project along with the thread you plan on using for the finished project. This will give you a fair assessment of the stitching and thread choices.

Happy Sewing,
