Piecing Makeover talks you through common mistakes and holds your hand in an effort to correct them.
Here is a glance at the contents. This girl speaks straight to my heart. She starts off the book with "how to sew a scant 1/4" seam".
I see many people on IG often showing off their furling of the seam intersection, but I have never tried it myself. I definitely know I'm guilty of having some bulky seams in my blocks. Patty recommends this technique a lot and I think I'm going to give it a go.
I don't want to give away all her tips and tricks, but there is a tip about strip or chain piecing log cabin blocks that blew my mind. ;)
And I loved the section on piecing these modern odd shapes. Half-rectangle triangles are on my list of skill builders for myself - and future BOMs and samplers. Such great info.
Piecing Makeover is now available. If you think you'd like to invest in your own piecing skills, Patty's book is a great reference to assist in your success.
