    502. Explore Fabrics Other Than Quilting Cotton

    15/02/2021 Duración: 35min

    For many of us, quilting cotton is our go-to when we’re making projects. But there are so many fun types of fabrics in the market, and some of these specialty types of fabric are being made with higher quality and cuter materials than we may have seen in the past. We talk about the different kinds of fabric you may want to consider when sewing your next project, as well as tips for smooth sewing. We also chat with Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew about her design process, choosing fabrics, her Diagonal Seam Tape, and more!
