When piecing blocks, I use my design boards to keep everything neat and organized. With all of the little pieces in the Tone it Down blocks, the design boards were a big life saver. And my cute redheaded helper did a little cutting for me!
With all of these small squares, it is important to use an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Be sure to sew with a quarter inch" foot, or to use a quarter inch guide on your machine! Do a quick test before starting the Tone it Down Quilt Long to keep your quilt accurate.
These little pieces come together really quickly. Will you join in the APQ Tone it Down Quilt Along? Will you try a scrappy version, or go with a "planned-scrappy" version like me? Get your magazine today and start sewing with us!
