Never Lose Track of the Sewing Order Again!

Do you ever find yourself getting confused about which piece goes where when sewing your quilt top together?

This handy tip will help you to keep track of your cut fabric pieces – even if the project has been sitting for awhile. You’ll instantly know where to begin, and how the pieces should be sewn together to make the quilt blocks.

The secret is to create a set of coded pins for each project (these pins work great). With this system you’ll know just what to do next when you return to a project.

Watch the video all the way to the end to get every tip.

No more guessing. No more time wasted tearing out mismatched pieces. More time sewing. Perfect!

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!
