Lynette Anderson, Alex Anderson, Ricky Tims, and others give you tips and tricks to help you assemble the 2015 BOM My Country House. Included are tips for squaring up your blocks, fabric pressing, block 'how-tos', and more. Even if you aren't making the BOM, many of these quilt tips will help you to construct your own patchwork designs.
In Month 1, Lynette shares her technique for cutting, stitching, trimming and ironing bias stems with "Perfect Stems". Perfect stems are strips of plastic that are inserted into the stitched stem for ironing to size. Once you have them ironed, they can be pinned or glued in place for hand or machine appliqué.
