Everything you need to take your quilt piecing to the next level! Be more organized, reduce quilting errors (upside down block pieces anyone?) and get better, more accurate seams with matched points and square corners.
This bundle includes the Acorn Precision Piecing Starter Kit, Shelley Tobisch's book "Easy Precision Piecing - A New Approach to Accuracy & Organization for Quilters" and a set of two Acorn 12 x 12 inch Block Builder Bases.
The Precision Piecing Starter Kit offers a new and easy way to piece and press your quilt blocks more accurately, resulting in flatter seams, matched points, and square corners.
The Precision Piecing Kit has three components:
Seam Align Glue
Seam Align Glue is used in place of pins and holds your fabric pieces together more securely than pins with no slipping. The soft and flexible non-toxic glue comes in a squeeze bottle with a precision tip so that you can apply it with total accuracy.
Easy Press Solution & Easy Press Pen
Press your sewn block seam open, and then use the Easy Press Pen with to apply the Easy Press Solution directly to the "high side" of the seam. Press again to get a perfectly flat seam.
Shelley's book, Easy Precision Piecing—the pathway to perfectly pieced quilt blocks will teach you a comprehensive system for precise quilt making, starting with picking the right tools and prepping your fabric for the best results. Learn to get organized so you can easily set aside projects without losing your place.
Practice your cutting, sewing, and pressing with foolproof Quilt Block Builder blueprints, then use your newfound skills to make 6 stunning quilt projects.
The 12 x 12 Acorn Block Builder Base is a reusable base for your quilt block with a transparent fabric piece that you can lift up and slide a pattern underneath. Use the Block Builder Base to follow a pattern or blueprint, design patterns and blocks, audition fabrics, organize and transport blocks, and reduce errors in your work.
