Just a quick tip today! This was something I learned in a quilt class many moons ago, but it’s still something I use all the time.
All. The. Time.
When you’re sewing with a tone-on-tone fabric, especially in light colors, sometimes it can be darn near impossible to tell which is the right side of your fabric until after it’s sewn into a quilt.
If you’re working with a light background, and you’re not sure which side is up, hold it against your pant leg. Seriously.
|See how clear the concentric circles are in this picture? That’s the right side of my fabric.|
|And….no more circles. This is the wrong side.|
Truly, if you think it’s going to bother you later, take a couple of seconds during your piecing to make a pant check.
What did you learn early on, or recently, that has made all the difference to your sewing?
