I hate cutting out fabric....can I say that?? Is that allowed? It never fails that I'm off just enough that it messes up my block. Typically....because I know I have this problem...I cut out the fabric for one block at a time. Well....I started the Oh My Stars quilt along and I thought "HEY...I will cut out all the stuff for the blocks at once to get that part out of the way because I hate that part so much!" BAD IDEA....tried my first block and yep, it's off by just a smidge. Enough so that it is noticeable. Soooooo....now I have to recut the stuff for the blocks. GRRRR!!!! I need to say that again...GRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Any tips or tricks for this new quilter! I am in desperate need of assistance. How do I measure accurately each time?? I don't have a lot of gadgets and tools so the less of those types of things used the better.
