Do you starch your fabric before cutting? I buy this bottle of starch at Walmart.
Mix with a bit of water – I don’t measure. Soak fabric.
Hang up to dry. I like to do this outside – and hang over my railing but the bath tub works good in the winter.
This stack is dry and waiting to be ironed and used in the following quilt.
The quilt is called Wensleydale and looks kind of disjointed (and ugly). I’ve used every goofy print that I thought might work. But I’m hoping it will get better and will continue on because I love using these foundation papers by Jen Kingwell.
I like starching my fabric because it cuts perfectly, irons like a dream and there is no slipping when stitching.
Disadvantages – there is a bit of shrinking of the fabric and spontaneous cutting and sewing are always 6 hours in the future!
