Accuracy is everything when it comes to piecing. So many angles to align and pieces to match. And there’s nothing more frustrating than cutting up your favorite fabrics and laboring over an A+ quilt block only to discover that it’s come out too small, or the pieces don’t fit together quite right, or whatever misfortune tends to befall you at this phase. Here are a few things you can do to improve accuracy and prevent the sting of a bad piece.

That’s totally normal: Designers, artists and makers often gravitate to the same shades over and over again.

Working with less familiar hues is a good challenge and can even help bring your work in new directions.
