Take the step of folding fabric so it’s ready for cutting when you first get it home from the store (or after pre-washing). Doing so means you’ll be ready to jump in as soon as inspiration strikes. It’s a step you may want to skip but that’s well worth the effort.
Nancy Roelfsema shows us her folding method in the article you’ll find here. Notice how you can just open the fabric up and start cutting strips. Nice! But what do you do if you have a long length of fabric?
In the following video Nancy shows how to fold up a large piece of fabric. Not only will it fit nicely with other folded fabric but it will be ready to cut when you’re ready.
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!
