I am going to do an on-point setting for a project. Due to the directional pattern of the fabric, I am going to have to cut the block on the bias rather than straight of grain, so that the pattern is correctly positioned in the "diamond" when it is on point. Does that description make sense?
Anyway, is there something I should do to stablize the fabric so it does not stretch? Should I put a lightweight iron-on stabilizer on the back before cutting? If so, what kind? Would simply starching it very well prevent bias stretch? Should I just leave it alone and cut and handle it carefully and hope for the best?
Thanks for sharing your experience.
