I am still working on this and haven't given up yet... everything is so new to me I am feeling encouraged to keep on going! I have learned so much - here are few tips:
- Definitely invest in the rotating cutting mat - I bought mine at JoAnn's when they have their Olfa sale. I have been happy with the 12 inch size.
- Small rotary cutter - 28mm
- Clover white fine tip marking pen
- Temporary basting glue - or any water soluable glue like elmers. You just need a needle point bottle. I bought this with plans to fill it with Elmers when it's empty.
I have put together my pieces - by chain piecing...
Then instead of pinning the curves I glue basted them - HUGE time saver! you just need a tiny tiny tiny bit. I learned this at the last quilt guild meeting from Rachel. It doesn't take any time for it to dry since it's such a small amount and it doesn't gum up your machine. It also washes out when you wash the quilt.
