I am thrilled today to bring you a video tutorial for the method I devised to help me quickly get the directional prints I used in my Layer Cake Pop quilt to be oriented “right side up” using a stitch and flip method.

    Thanks for this tutorial Yvonne. There are many one directional fabrics on the market at present so this will help enormously.

  30. I came to a similar process while working on the Geometry quilt after realizing that my focus fabric was directional. It does take more time, but the end result is so worth it.

  31. Very fun tip for getting directional fabrics all lined up. Thanks!

    This is great Yvonne. You did a wonderful job explaining something that can be quite confusing. Adding the little extra bit of explanation at the end really helps.I usually fold it back to see if it’s how I want it. But could still get it mixed up when I turned it over. Thanks for the tutorial.

  35. Isn’t that a great little tip! Thanks!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
