The Sesen Skill Builder Bundle is the perfect compliment of 3 digital patterns that will guide you through creating beautiful inset circles and inset seams with lower risk block and mini quilt patterns so that you can piece the Sesen quilt pattern with confidence!
Last year, I got bitten by the curved piecing bug, and with the Cathedral Star block I am giving you lots of great options and tips to piece beautiful curves. The block pattern offers different piecing options, and to focus on skill building for the Sesen quilt pattern, be sure to make the block using Option 2.
Not all seams can be assembled with a continuous straight line; sometimes a piece has to be set in. These seams are often referred to as inset seams or partial seams. In the Playful Partial Seams mini quilt pattern, I walk you through piecing 90-degree inset seams and gentle curve partial seams. I call this design playful because it is meant to be low risk and allow you the opportunity to try a new technique before committing to a larger pattern (like Sesen) that contains these techniques.
Sesen means lotus flower and is a symbol of the sun, creation, and rebirth. Let your creativity be rekindled with this modern, graphic quilt design! The pattern offers three sizes: baby, lap, and queen AND includes bonus quilt options for the large scraps created in piecing!
Templates and Template Preparation
I work with acrylic templates when I am piecing curves, but I know that not all templates are the same and not everyone has templates. When cutting the concave and convex shapes, you may use templates included at the end of each PDF or standard 6ʺ finished / 6½ʺ unfinished Drunkard’s Path acrylic templates (I personally use templates from Jen Carlton-Bailly). Note: If you have your own set of Drunkard’s Path acrylic templates, I recommend printing out the templates verifying that your templates match the concave and convex shapes suggested for the pattern.
- I find a smaller 28mm rotary cutter ideal for cutting curves in combination with acrylic rulers. This is totally optional. A 45mm rotary cutter will also work very well.
- 12½ʺ square ruler or larger
