Reduce Bulk with These Tips!
Have you ever made a block and had the spot where several seams come together turn into a hard lump? That not only looks bad but it’s also miserable to quilt through.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. With these tips you can piece stars, compasses, pinwheels and other complex blocks neatly and without bulky intersections.
An excellent tutorial by Dawn Cavanaugh for APQS shows you exactly how to make those intersections lay flat. She walks you through how to press the block segments, her special pinning method for achieving perfect points, and how to reduce bulk where several seams meet.
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!
