This week’s Quilt Talk Tuesday continued getting you ready for the Rainbow Serenade QAL which starts September 11th. The focus was to give you a better understanding of the Studio 180 Design Corner Pop® Tool and to provide a sneak peek to one of the units, you will be making in the QAL.
The Studio 180 Design Corner Pop® tool is an excellent tool for adding fabric corners to basic shapes and blocks successfully every time. The tool was designed to give you perfect filled four corners with less waste. You can apply this tool to any unit or block that you want to add color to, by just referring to the tool’s instruction cutting chart.
Initially, you would use the folding corners method, where you would layer small squares on a big square, then you would have to mark each of the small squares and stitch them to the larger square. Then when finished, hope it lines up correctly so it doesn't come out crooked or the wrong size. This was both wasteful of time and fabric.
With the Corner Pop® tool, you will only have to trim rather than a mark by add an oversized replacement triangle and then square everything to a perfect size. The tool has twenty-two different sizes options, which include whole, half and quarter inch increments.
