Audition Fabric for a Block Without Cutting It First |
A Genius Tip That Saves Fabric and Time!
Have you ever wanted to see exactly how the fabrics you’ve chosen look in a block, without having to cut the fabric first? There’s an easy solution that will save both time and fabric.
Thank Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict for this genius idea. She uses her inkjet printer/copier to scan and print exact life-size replicas of her fabric.
Simply cut and arrange the paper into the block and voila! A quick and accurate representation of what the block will look like made up in that fabric.
But what if you don’t have a printer? Check around for a store in your area that does inexpensive color copies (like Kinkos or Staples).
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!
