Hi everyone, it is Connie with another fun AccuQuilt tutorial. Today I am sharing a precious little appliqué baby quilt designed with the new GO! 12" Qube Companion Set-Corners and the GO! Flower Bunch appliqué die.
Now that you’ve fallen in love with your AccuQuilt fabric die cutter, you’ll want to keep it working perfectly so you never have to go back to cutting by hand again. The best way to ensure this is to handle, transport, and store your cutter with care. If you’re not using your cutter every day, or if you like a pristine studio in between quilting sessions, you will at some point need to store your cutter.
The GO! Qubes are creating a lot of buzz in the quilting world and our guest bloggers love them, too. We are confident you will find them just as amazing if you haven't already purchased one. You won't believe all the options you have to create stunning blocks, and the Qube includes everything you need to get started - just add fabric.
And the answer? Yes!
Most of the time.
First, let’s talk about why you would want to prewash. There are two main reasons. Both are particularly important if you are buying your quilting fabrics from somewhere other than a quilt shop or a vendor catering to the needs and interests of quilters. (Who among you would do that?!) You may see fabrics that look just like what they sell in quilt shops in lesser locations, but what you may not know is that those fabrics are often printed on less-than-top-quality “greige” goods (pronounced “gray” goods), the base fabric that takes the pattern and dyes.
