Have you ever needed a piece of fabric that’s wider than 44″? You may have labored over how to sew two pieces together and make them appear as one length of fabric.
The secret is in matching the design of the fabric exactly, but that can sometimes be a challenge. However, when it’s done perfectly, the seam virtually disappears.
A seam runs under the hand in the above photo. It’s essentially invisible.
Fortunately there’s an easy solution. In the following video Terry Griffin shows her simple method that works every time.
This technique is perfect for quilt backings, borders and other instances where you need a long strip or width of fabric that appears to be un-pieced. Once it’s incorporated into the quilt you’ll have to look very closely to find the seam.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
