Video Tutorial! Quilt Piecing Tips for Perfect Triangle Points
A viewer emailed me to ask if she should buy some software to help her piece-in-the-hoop to help her make Lori Holt’s Calico Garden Calico Star Blocks. Since I’ve never used the software she mentioned, I told her I couldn’t give any good advice on that, but suggested she learn to piece the traditional way. I promised her I’d put a video out on it and here it is.
I know there are many ways to do this, but these are the techniques and methods I use to piece my blocks in a quilt. I’ve never had any professional quilting classes on this but learned it by the old “trial and error” method (mostly error) and then reached into my Garment Sewing background bag of tricks to figure out the secret. So now, when I do any type of Sew & Flip, Snowballs, or Flying Geese, these are the concepts I use to help me get them right. The concepts in this video work throughout any type of straight quilt piecing patterns. I hope it’s helpful!
Please comment if you have any tips too!
