Mary – William Morris Fabrics by MODA w ith Batik Backgrounds
Mary says: When sewing “D” triangles together, don’t start at the pointed end as it can easily get sucked down into the throat plate. Start at the 90 Degree corner of the triangles. Using an awl or bamboo stick or toothpick, whatever your tool of choice is, will help guide these tiny triangles under your needle.
Leslie – Midwinter Reds by MODA
Leslie says: WHen following the step 5, page 14 directions for the “quick-pieced square-on-point” unit, I like to press all layers toward the coner before trimming the seam to 1/4”. In that way, you can line up the coner triangle with the underneath square.
Lisa – Lario by MODA
Lisa says: I like to make my half-square and quarter-square triangle units a little larger and then I square them up with the Perfect Half-Square & Quarter Square Triangles Ruler made by June Tailor. I just love the accuracy that this gives me!
