Fabric Picking Tip!
Pick by saturation: the intensity of a color. My number 1 tip is to pick colors with the same amount of saturation! You can bounce around with dark and warm, but as long as they are the same intensity, you're good to go!

How to Make a Water-Resistant Quilt | suzyquilts.com
Suzyquilts.com has found the perfect backing for a picnic quilt - ripstop nylon! This fabric is very thin and smooth, and it lays wonderfully on the back of the quilt (you won’t actually quilt through this layer). Plus it makes an oddly satisfying crinkle noise when you rustle it (quilt ASMR anyone?). Lastly, it adds almost no bulk. Check out the block post to learn more!
How to cut fabric on grain!
1. Prewash your fabric - iron while damp to save time 2. Use starch for more accurate sewing 3. Snip into selvage and rip - fabric rips on grain 4. Line up the ripped edge by folding in half and holding the selvages #quilt #quiltmaking #quiltpatterns #blankets #freequiltpatterns #cuttingfabric #fabric
