It can also be called a Quilt, which means “mending pieces”. More and more I am looking for this craft besides the crochet that will make you fall in love. This technique is one of the oldest that has been recorded, the first works already found to date date from the period before Christ.

It is a technique whose quality is in the improvement, so you do not have to start doing complex work and can start doing some things by hand instead of going straight to the sewing machine. More important than the type of technique, it is necessary to know how to do it with precision, that goes from the cuts until the assembly of the fabrics.
Circular bundles – thus allowing a more precise cut
Pins and a set of basic lines – always try to match the line with the pattern of the fabric used
Fabrics – of different colors and patterns.
The most indicated fabrics are cotton without elastane and you can start with it mainly because they are firmer and easier to handle. Remember that every inch is important and stretching fabrics can deform the work. Before entering the sewing machine, test the fabric assemblies by pinning them or even sewing by hand. As much as you are sure of the precision of the cuts or imagine the final result, it is always good to test before doing the definitive work, because then you will notice small adjustments.
