Whether you’re just dipping your toes into the quilting waters or swimming in the deep end, we all like to save money where we can. Here are some helpful tips to keep you quilting without breaking the bank!
Ready for more quilting tips for National Sewing Month? Whether you are new to quilting or not, some of the terms in quilt patterns and discussions can be confusing. For example, you might start to think that quilting is really a code word for snacks when you start seeing terms like jelly rolls and layer cakes popping up, and hearing about fat quarters might just seem to confirm that. Don’t worry, these are fabric goodies, and your waistline is safe.
Fabric selection is key to any quilt, but if you are new to quilting, it can be very intimidating. Many a new quilter has found themselves frozen with indecision when standing in the middle of hundreds of bolts of fabric, but it can happen even to experienced quilters!
Wasted fabric is a quilter's least favorite phrase, which is exactly why nearly every sewing room or space has a scrap stash. Beautiful fabric falling to inaccuracies or miscalculated cuts is enough to warrant tears. The AccuQuilt team hates to hear that fabric cutters and dies create fabric waste, because just like a rotary cutter, our products can be used improperly and not do your fabric investments any good. That's why we're sharing our top three, tried and true fabric-saving AccuQuilt tips!
