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.
Look around your workspace — do you tend to collect and use specific colors of fabric, yarn, thread or other materials? That’s totally normal: Designers, artists and makers often gravitate to the same shades over and over again. But, as you start thinking about your fall projects, consider breaking out of your color comfort zone! Working with less familiar hues is a good challenge and can even help bring your work in new directions.
