Any instructions with [brackets], refers you to that instruction page, available free from the Technique Page in the Library section of this site.

I write the cutting measurements, for this quilt, as width x length.
This is helpful for those using fabrics with a direction, like the knit printed fabric I'm using.

Within the tutorial instructions, any measurements will be for the smaller Quilt, and I'll include the (Family Size Quilt) measurement, after it, in a (bracket).

Starch your fabric, before cutting, if you feel that may be helpful, for the fabric you use.

Sew the seams with a scant ¼". The [Machine Piecing Basics] instruction page has tips for checking yours.

Press the seams open [Pressing].

When cutting down strip sets [Strip Piecing], you'll find a bit of extra fabric (less than ¼"), because I include a ¼" extra in the measurement of the strips.

Included in the unit/layout pictures, you will see an * beside a number.
This indicates you will need to match a seam(s), when sewing the units together.

My best tip for getting a good matching seam is using 'Perpendicular Pinning':

*Perpendicular Pinning Tip: Place a pin through the seams of both sides that you are joining, aligning the raw edges at the top. Don't anchor it. Hold the pin perpendicular (90*) with your first two fingers (underneath) and your thumb on top. Now place an anchor pin (going in at an angle) beside it. Remove the perpendicular pin after you've anchored it.
This pinning method keeps the seams from shifting out of place.

When finished each block I will instruct you to block it at the finished size.
You will find the instructions on how to do this with my [Blocking] how to.
This method I use makes for a finer finished quilt top.
