#2 Stand Up When You Cut or Trim

By standing up, you’ll be able to cut more accurately than by sitting down.

#3 Use A Sharp Rotary Blade

Rotary blades can really impact your quilting so make sure to change your blades into new ones once your current blade starts to get dull.

#4 Press Your Seams Open

When you press open, it’s much easier to get a nice straight line to get accurate strip piecing.

#5 Pin Where It Matters

Pin right where you’re going to be sewing over the seam allowance.


#6 Use Two Pins When You’re Pinning Triangle Units Together

Take a pin and put it at the very tip of the point of one triangle unit, and also at the tip of the triangle unit that you’re pinning it to. Hold it with your thumb and forefinger, go straight up and down through the fabric, take a second pin, and pin across.

#7 Make Sure You’re Sewing With A Quarter Inch Seam

Make sure you’re using an actual quarter-inch presser foot and you’re sewing an actual quarter-inch seam.

#8 Ditch Your Quarter Inch Presser Foot with a Guide

Ditch the guide so you’ll be able to sew continuously even with pins on.

#9 Swap the Steam In Your Iron For A Spray Mister

Using a spray mister will deliver a fine mist over and there will be no water droplets you have to worry about.

#10 Trim Your Block Units To Size

Make sure to always trim your blocks so they will always fit. If you skip this step, you will end up with a wobbly block and things aren’t going to fit together.
