How to Use the "Sew and Flip" Technique

By: Shereece Spain from blog.rileyblakedesigns.com

When you are learning to quilt, the vast variety of techniques and methods can be overwhelming to say the least. This quick walkthrough will give you a short demonstration of the 'sew and flip' or 'stitch and flip' technique, which is used to complete many different types of quilting patterns. In this technique, quilters draw a diagonal line across the backside of a square, place that square in the corner of another strip of fabric and stitch along the line. After this you simply press the piece open and you have an easy tringle. Take a look at a more detailed example of this popular technique when you follow the link below. Let us know what you think of the 'sew and flip' technique in the comments section!
