Masterclass Breakdown

#1. Cutting Quilt Squares

Cutting all the fabric for a quilt is a process that can be very time-consuming. Trying to cut out evenly shaped squares with a rotary cutter can be very difficult – you may spend hours cutting and still have uneven squares. Even if you take your time and are careful with your measurements, it’s likely that your squares will not be exactly the same size – 1/8 inch here, 1/8 inch there. This can really throw off the look of your quilt and make it difficult to piece together. 

Would you like to easily cut 24 perfect squares in one minute? This is where the AccuQuilt Go fabric cutter comes in handy.

If you’re looking to speed up the process of cutting quilt shapes, an AccuQuilt Go fabric cutter is a great investment. This tool can save you hours of work in the long run. I will show you how to use the machine. Additionally, the AccuQuilt Go machine produces clean and precise cuts.

#2. Sewing Quilt Squares Together – few people know about this incredible technique

Sewing quilt squares together can be a tricky business, especially if you’re new to quilting. It’s important to make sure that all of the squares are aligned correctly and that all of the points match up. If even one square is off, it can throw the whole quilt off balance. 

In this masterclass, I will show you a new way to sew quilt squares together that is quick and easy, and ensures that all of the squares are lined up perfectly. You’ll be surprised at how simple it is, and you’ll wonder why you never learned this technique before. 

This new method is much faster than traditional methods, and results in a neater, more professional-looking quilt. So whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, this class is sure to teach you something new.

#3. How to Baste a Quilt

There are many different ways to baste a quilt and make a quilt sandwich,  and each has its own benefits and drawbacks. In this masterclass, I will show you some new tools that you can use to speed up the process. Basting brings together the quilt top, batting, and backing, and holds them in place so that they will not shift during quilting. By using the right tools, you can make the process easier and faster.

In this masterclass, I will not be showing you how to quilt the pillow sham and placemat in great detail. 

However, I will show you what methods and materials I use to mark quilting lines. 

For the pillow sham, I simply used a regular sewing machine to quilt (straight line quilting). Anyone can do this type of quilting. I will show you what presser foot is great for this.

For the placemat, I used my embroidery machine to create stippling stitches. These two methods are just examples of what you can use to quilt your own projects. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide what methods and materials you want to use. Whichever method you choose, just make sure that you are comfortable with it.

You mention beingoff 1/8" makes a difference in a finished quilt. to put it into perspective: Quilts have many squares, let's use 80 for an example, 80 times 1/8 = 10. You wouldn't want your quilt to be 10" off. A quilter friend of mine used 1/16 and 16 squares. That's an inch off.

Thank you; that was my point too, a 1/8" difference may not seem large, but it accumulates. However for straight stitches even a 1/8" variation between two adjacent blocks may be visible, depending on the design.
