write the cutting measurements, for this quilt, as width x length.
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.
in the unit/layout pictures, you will see an * beside a number.
My best tip for getting a good matching seam is using 'Perpendicular Pinning':
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)
on both sides. Remove the perpendicular pin after you've anchored it.
Note: The sharp,
thin metal of the shortest 'extra-fine' pin, is perfect for the perpendicular
pinning, I like to do, to match seams.
