It Works With Other Seam Intersections As Well!
Do you find yourself doing a lot of tearing out when combining diamond shaped patches? Matching up those points can be a bit tricky but this process will help.
Susan from QuiltFabrication has written an excellent tutorial showing how to achieve perfect points when combining rows of diamonds. We love her tip to sew just a few stitches at each intersection before sewing full rows together. That saves a lot of ripping out if you need to re-do a section because the points don’t match.
This process works with many types of patches and blocks where achieving precise joins is a bit of a challenge. Give it a try the next time you’re combining rows of diamonds or other tricky intersections. You may find, like Susan did, that diamonds are way easier than you thought.
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!
