Over all the time that I have read and posted here, I have found there are many quilters, some new, who have questions, better answered by an experienced quilter and seamstress.
If you truly want to learn the correct way, go here.
I know there are so many books on the market with so many talented artist in their design but even so, most of them, are not teaching you the correct way. if the instructions says cut on the crossgrain to make your strips, that is a glue right there that they are using methods from the caravan days lol.
Learn the facts about fabric etc. and then do as you please. I have seen enough questions here to merit this post.
Just go read and have a wonderful learning experience and then buy one of her books and they are all alike with stuff you need to know.
We all quilt at our own style and that is fine but it always helps to get the groundwork under you belt, if you are so inclined.
