We’ve all had that fabric that is just too pretty to cut up. Today’s tutorial shows you how to make sure your favorite fabric design motifs are front and center for your quilt blocks and borders.
And since we’re celebrating the arrival of the first collection Nocturne with QT Fabrics, we are using the owls and trellis prints to demonstrate. You can check out yardage and kits at this link: https://shop.quiltaddictsanonymous.com/product-category/fabric/quilting-treasures/nocturne-by-stephanie-soebbing/?orderby=date
We’re going to cover the process of fussy cutting squares and borders, which is the process of very deliberately cutting your fabric to showcase your favorite motifs or to make sure your border cuts are parallel with the lines on the fabric design. Fussy cutting is a great way to take your quilt designs to the next level which just a little bit of extra effort when you cut.
I show you how to use super easy supplies you probably already have at home to mark off your ruler, to create a window that previews what your design. Then we cover how to get everything lined up just perfectly so you can get your motif centered and finally we cut!
