So I started teaching myself how to sew last year and I've come a far way but I decided to relearn how to quilt from step one and bought the quilter's academy books.
I am now on the first set of lessons and am learning how to tear fabric to straighten it.
I have a quick question Harriet suggest working in short yardages of 1/2 yard or less. Is this just for the practice part or does she mean even when you are doing this for a project to use 1/2 yardage or less. It seems that that could create a significant waste of fabric....
If anyone knows the answer I would appreciate it.
