Instructions



What Is Flip And Sew


The pattern is traced onto a piece of backing fabric. Fabric strips are pinned into place and sewing is done on the BACK of the project piece. When finished, the top is already "quilted" to the backing.

Use the flip and sew technique to quickly and easily create this intricately pieced quilt block. Create several for a quilt, or add a frame for an "instant" wall piece!

The project on the left, above, was framed. The project on the right, above, was turned into a wall hanging. I call it "Earth Curves".

1.  CUT FABRIC PIECES / TRACE PATTERN

Cut four strips of coordinating fabric, each measuring 4" x 22".
Cut one piece of backing fabric, 12" x 14".


2.  TRACE PATTERN

Tape the pattern to a window (or use a light box). Place the muslin or backing, wrong side up, over the pattern and trace the pattern onto the muslin. Remove the pattern and fabric from the window.

Turn the fabric over (right side up) and trace over the line that shows through the lower right corner. Only that one line will be drawn onto the right side of the fabric.

4.  CUT ROWS

Place fabric so that the stitched rows run vertically. Cut into five horizontal rows, each 4" wide.

5.  LINE UP FIRST PIECE

Place backing piece right side up so that the one line shows in the lower right hand corner. Place piece 1 right side up over line so that its upper edge overlaps the line 1/4". Do NOT pin or stitch yet.

6.  LINE UP / PIN
    SECOND PIECE


Place piece 2 over piece one, right sides together, lining up upper edges, but not seams. Seams should be at least 1/4" off. In other words, piece 2 seams are slightly to the right of piece 1 seams. Both pieces' upper edges overlap the line 1/4". Pin pieces into place. Do NOT stitch.
