If you are reading this, it is because you are making a Vertigo Quilt, so thanks for buying my pattern!!!
This tutorial is intended to help you understand the assembly of the Quilt. It might look tricky at first, but the curves are gentle enough to make it easier to sew.
It might look tricky at first, but the curves are gentle enough to make it easy to sew.
We will build our quilt from the inside to the outside. Start with the central circle (A). We fold it in half and fingerpress it, so we have a crease marking the centre.
Fold it again in half and finger press to create another mark.
Fold B along the center of the smaller circle, matching the seams that divides the ring in to parts.
Place B over A, both right sides up, matching the creases we have marked and the seams of the ring.
Fold over one side where the creases match. Pin to secure.
Fold over the opposite side matching the creases. Pin to secure.
Repeat the process with the remaining two sides matching the creases and seams.
Place pins all around the seam, matching the edges.
Use your fingers to pull the fabric and align the edges.
Sew all around using a 1/4″ seam allowance and removing pins as you go. If necessary, use a pair of tweezers to pull the fabric and align the edges.
If you don’t have a pair of tweezers, you might use a pin.
Open the unit and press seams towards the circle.
Here you can see the wrong side of the unit.
Fold the unit along the center of the bigger circle and finger press to create two creases.
Repeat the whole process using C, D, E, etc. as shown in the gallery below. It is the same process as before. The bigger the circle, the easier to sew.
