Today starts the Flat & Happy series! It’ll be full of quick little tutorials on basic patchwork skills to better achieve flat & happy quilts!! These are all based on how I do things and you might not do it the same, but you might pick up a trick or two. Let’s prep some fabric!
I start by spraying the back of the fabric with starch or a starch like substance. Flatter is generally my option of choice. Spraying the back means the starch will penetrate instead of evaporating the second your iron hits it.
I prefer to prep about 18″ at a time. Once I’ve cut that, I prep the next section.
I don’t typically use steam. But if the fabric is super wrinkly, I’ll add some steam to help flatten it out!
