The Fussy Cut Sampler by Nichole Ramirez


We will work our way through this book for our 2018/2019 Guild year.


















Block of the Month


Fussy Cutting

This year we'll be working on our Fussy Cutting skills.  We'll learn how to fussy cut motifs of different shapes from different types of fabrics as well as learning how to incorporate fussy cutting into traditional quit blocks.  The blocks are from the book The Fussy Cut Sampler by Nichole Ramirez and Elisabeth Woo.  Members can sign the book out of our library or you can purchase it to see many other fussy cutting options.

Melissa’s Tip: You don’t need to use a striped fabric – anything that points in a direction will do.


Melissa's Tip:  If you're trying to match the fabric direction when making "two at a time" HST's, you can fold a corner of the top fabric over to get a sneak peek.
