Sample text

When I got up the next morning, I looked at it and thought, “Hmm, something’s not quite right. …” I checked every detail to make sure I hadn’t missed a shape or used the wrong fabric in one piece. Everything was there, but suddenly I was aware of a tiny little detail that would make this quilt amazing. And don’t we all want amazing quilts? It was adding the little yellow dots in the borders, which act like asterisks and underscore the center flowers in the border—and they had to be there.

You can practice stitching and correct stitch placement by making the appliqué sample set (page 35). Beginning and Ending the Stitching Always start your stitching one-third of the way from the top point of a leaf, or in the curve of another shape. Never start at a point, where the join between the beginning and ending stitches will be most obvious. Remove the appliqué from the sewing machine and snip the threads, leaving a good-length tail. Thread the tail into the top of a self-threading needle.

One solution is to purchase a black solid that is consistently dyed so that all the bolts are the same no matter where or when you buy them, such as Michael Miller Jet Black or Robert Kaufman Jet Black. Chapter 7: Designing Your Quilt 55 Will You Enter Your Quilt into Competition? Yes, you have to know now.
