Here is a fun time-lapse video I took when I pieced my block (and I do not sew this fast in real life!).
Here’s an overview of what I discussed in the second Greenhouse Garden bonus video featured above.
First up, I spill the beans on my secret Foundation Paper Piecing weapon: water-soluble glue sticks. Discover how applying a dab of glue strategically during the process keeps your fabric in check, ensuring piecing with ease.
Then, I demonstrate fabric positioning tips that’ll elevate your piecing game. From folding back paper and marking lines to the magic of Clover Mini Wonder clips, I give you all my tips & tricks!
We’ll also go over how to achieve spot-on alignments, I introduce you to the process of positioning pinning. Watch as I use super-thin Iris Superfine pins to align dots and create flawless seams.
Remember, perfection is overrated. If your alignments aren’t spot-on, embrace the beauty of imperfection – after all, your quilt is a masterpiece in the making!
I can’t wait to see your second block come together!
Thanks for sewing along with us. I can’t wait to see you next month with more tips and tricks!
