Have you ever heard of Flat Felled seams? They are known as the prettiest and strongest seam, and they look clean on both right and wrong sides! This technique can be applied to your quilts because it doesn’t require any batting or backing, transforming your quilt tops for more uses like a curtain or a tablecloth. Use its transparency to your advantage, like putting it against the window for a stunning stained glass effect, and watch the light peak through at different times of the day giving a warm glow to any space. Learn about this technique in our latest blog post, where “Laucara” will explain step-by-step how you can achieve this look and even apply it to more than just your quilts, but your favorite pair of jeans or in artistic ways like this Pojagi inspired patchwork piece.

Hi Mandy! Im really happy you liked the tutorial. Using the four at a time flying geese technique and directional fabrics in the sky and the goose, there is no way to have all the resulting flying geese with the fabric looking in the right direction. The only way would be to make the flying geese in the traditional way, in which you cut each rectangle for the goose and the squares for the sky and join them one by one making sure the placement of the fabric is the way that you want it. Please let me know if this makes sense.

Thank you for your kind words Rosemary! This is one of my favorite collections, it was hard for me to hold back and narrow my ideas to only two techniques lol.

Hi JenP, I love the time saving aspect of this method too! The quilt will be heavier for sure but I don't think it will be way heavier than if you use the traditional methods. We have made cathedral window quilts that require more layers of fabric and the quilts are still confortable and not super heavy. If you stitch to shut the pockets, it will still have texture. Just to be on the safe side, I would do a small test with batting and backing to see if you really like the look. I would love to hear from you with a feedback of your experience ;).

Hi Jan, thank you so much, that is such a wonderful and sweet gesture on your part! I love the color replacement you are planning to do. If you are planning to cut the unfinished strips 1" wide like the tutorial, then the big squares need to be 4" to 6" longer and wider than the finished quilt size, and the only reason for this is so you have some extra space for error at the end when you square the quilt top. Or if you prefer you can tell me what is the finished size of the quilt and how wide you want the finished strips to measure so I can calculate and give you a more accurate answer. Please let me know if this is helpful or if you have any other question! Have fun!!!
