Did you know that September is National Sewing Month? To celebrate sewing, Oda May has cooked up a new Rotary Cutter Ratings System that will help you decide which Moda Bake Shop recipes to tackle based on your sewing skills.
Dear Oda May,
1 Rotary Cutter (EASY) – These recipes are simple and quick to put together, usually no sew or can be sewn up in a couple of hours. Easy recipes involve minimal cutting and only basic sewing/quilting skills (backstitching, edge stitching, making a quilt sandwich, precise measuring and cutting).
2 Rotary Cutters (MODERATE) – These recipes are slightly more difficult and/or take more than a few hours to sew together. For quilts, moderate recipes require more cutting and squaring up than easy recipes. Moderate recipes use all of the easy level skills plus the following: matching points, using interfacing, and top stitching.
3 Rotary Cutters (AMBITIOUS) – These recipes take several days to complete and involve a special skill such as embroidery, applique, paper piecing or the use of a special tool. Be sure to read through these recipes before starting because lesser-known techniques may be part of the construction.
Cutting the Day Away,
