This month we are going to tackle a gentle curve. Once again I will share my Accuquilt Go system, this time the Apple Core Die. I have seen this die used with string pieced blocks cut at different angles for a very scrappy look. My quilt was done with batiks so I could close that bin. The scrap size needed is 7.5” x 6” or 7.5”strips. This would be adorable in 30’s reproductions. When doing curves I like to use a stiletto, perhaps the purple thang available in the shop, you might want to glue baste with a glue pen also available in the shop. So join us, start the New Year right with a new technique and make new friends.
Supplies needed: Fabrics of your choice. It would be helpful if you brought a complete cutting system and a personal pressing station to avoid lines.
Sewing machine in good working order as well as the manual (for troubleshooting)
Machine tools, screwdriver, lint brush, tweezers…
Specialty Feet, ¼” patchwork, zipper foot, edge foot, walking or free motion foot, class specific of course
Seam Guide & Sewers Edge, to keep a consist seam allowance between machines
Extra needles, universal 80/12 stay in my travel case, or class specific
Good Thread, please do this for yourself, we have all purchased Wal Mart thread and hopefully learned the error of our ways. The machine behaves better, the stitch looks better and the project will indeed last longer with good thread.
Cutting tools, thread snips, scissors, rotary cutter and a seam ripper, we all have to do some reverse sewing sometimes.
Straight pins, flat head and glass head fine are my choices
Marking tool, chalk pencil, air/water erasable pen, Frixion pen, Clover Chako Liner, etc
Clover Wonder Clips
Needle threader, most classroom machines are not our fancy ones that have this feature
Measuring tools, rulers, seam gauge, templates. Class specific.
