New YouTube video on use of P2P for 8pt Star Blocks

Recommended Posts

New video tutorial from the team of Angela Horton Huffman of Quilted Joy & Jessica Schick of Digi-Tech Designs. I'm so excited that Angela has agreed to work with us on producing some video tutorials for the use of some of our patterns & techniques. She does a great job & makes it so clear on how easy it will be to fill those 8pt star blocks using our patterns.

Here's the link to the video:

I design "breathing room" into all the patterns so that even if you max out the pattern in size for the area that you are marking that if the others are even remotely close you will be fine. Notice how the endpoints are out a little from the rest of the pattern elements, this means that the pattern has some room for the piecing to be less than perfect. Of course if you have a super wonky block - visibly wonky then you might want to do another arrowhead type marking to make sure, but all of the patterns that I design for this have enough breathing room so that even if the piecing is a little off, but not visibly off then they work. Angela is working on some videos for using some of the patterns for other hard to fit blocks. The patterns are labeled for whichever blocks they coordinate with, but many of them will work for hard to fit borders, etc also.

It is a wonderful system. I used to have another system & while it worked fine, I am able to do so much more with my Intelliquilters & so much easier also.

This is a great video! Very well done. I suppose that if you wanted, when you had all four points done, you could now use shape shift or magnet to draw the center points closer together? At any rate, it looks really nice as is. I have a couple of your eight-point-star designs, Jess. I really like them!

That is a great idea, Linda! I haven't had a chance to play too deeply with the new magnet and shape shift tool but they would be a great tool to really take this method over the top!
