Tailoring Thursdays™, Tips, Tricks and Techniques for Sewers
A lot of beginner quilters want to know how to get great points when they piece their quilts. It can be difficult to know how to keep those points from getting cut off.
The secret to pretty points is to let the points hang over the edge just a smidge (about a 1/4" smidge).
See how when you press that seam out the extra smidge can be cut off and the point lines up with the edge.
When you have multiple points the back of your piecing will have these W looking corners.
Hope that helps some people get those pretty points they are looking for!
When you are piecing a quilt getting those first points just right are what will allow the rest of the points while piecing fall into place!
