Cutting for Accuracy - Class Content

In this first class in Quilt Hive, it's important to focus on the basics. So we'll start by taking a good look at why cutting accurately is so important for your patchwork journey.

In this class you will learn:

  • All about tools to help you cut accurately
  • Potential pitfalls which lead to inaccurate cutting
  • How to accurately cut in different ways including curves and cutting from scraps

In this class we cut the fabric for a project that students make in the second class of Quilt Hive which is Precision Piecing.

You can check out the full contents of the class below.

Course Curriculum

I've been teaching sewing, patchwork & quilting for over 10 years and I'm excited to help you.  

I have absolutely LOVED helping every single one of my customers develop and improve their sewing, patchwork & quilting skills.  It's truly rewarding to see students progress and have 'lightbulb moments'.

I love teaching, breaking topics down into bite-sized chunks and making it achievable for all!  Since moving most of my teaching online it's been eye opening to realise that most people learn better this way: working at their own pace and having more time to practise; but still getting time with the teacher to ask questions.

Learned alot

Even though I have been sewing for quite a while, some of the tips you gave in the video, showed me I was being sloppy in some of my cutting, I will watch the next couple of videos, thanks Jo! Very interesting, Glad I joined the Hive.

I wish I'd known too...

I echo Denise's sentiment. Particularly the rulers - expensive mistakes but... moving on. I am looking forward to accurately cutting flying geese etc. I feel now that I might have fudged this in the past:-(. Can't wait to learn more, thank you Jo.

I wish I'd known...

This module was brilliant. There were so many points that I wish I'd known when I began my quilting journey. Some I found out along the way from Social Media but some I have found out from this first module. Since I can't go back in time, I will tell anyone I encounter who is new to quilting that this is the course for them. I look forward to learning more next month.

Great First Module

Loved this module and feel quite confident that my cutting will be more accurate moving forward. Can't wait to get started on the Precision Piecing module as although I know I've made progress over the years I feel I'm not as precise as I'd like to be.

Always a new tip - thank you

I've just binge-watched and have learned a lot, including the question that's been vexing me for years about ruler lines.
