In this section of the hand piecing workshop Carolyn shares with you how easy and quick it is to rotary cut, so that you can start sewing quicker.
Rotary cutting your patchwork pieces means that the sewing sequence is a little different, as you start with accurate outside edges (just as we do for machine piecing); but it does mean you can have lots of pieces ready for sewing-on-the-go which makes it very sociable and portable (and if you are organised you can easily take the pieces on holiday with you)
Carolyn shares with us how to make your sewing accurate – first with a sewing line, and then perhaps moving on to just ‘eye balling’ the seam allowance; easier than you might think.
