February Skill Builder BOM Technique

Basic Piecing

This month we will be making our blocks using basic piecing techniques, but in some cases we will be working with bias seams. When sewing on the bias you must be very careful because the bias stretches and can distort your block. This is where starch REALLY comes in handy, so please, please give starch a try. A few weeks ago I posted a video tutorial, that you can find here, on how to properly starch your fabrics.

The Blocks

This lesson is fairly easy and simple, so there was no need for a video tutorial or much preliminary information, so let’s dive right in. Go ahead and download Block Lesson #2 by clicking on the PDF button below. If you have any questions about the blocks, or see any errors, please stop by the flickr group or email me.
