Quilting tips – fixing mistakes

Quilting tips…

If one of your pieces is cut slightly bigger, sew with that piece on the bottom. The feed dogs scrunch the fabric slightly and helps use that little bit of extra fabric.

A little phrase I say to myself is “baggy bottoms”, that way I remember the baggy or piece that is too big goes on the bottom….yes , I have lots of these weird quilting thoughts:)
