Victoria Findlay Wolfe is no exception, she is an excellent teacher who combines show-and-tell style group instruction with personalized attention to each student as they sew. These scrap blocks in Victoria’s quilt are only one-inch square.
How does she manage such tiny pieces? With big seam allowances! It was an a-ha moment where many in the class said “Why hadn’t I ever thought of that?" Her scraps are small without being tiny and her seam allowances are half-inch and trimmed after sewing. When enough pieced fabric is made to place a one-inch acrylic template over it and cut around, then the block is done. Try it, you will be amazed.
