Sticking my beak in...


I had an email from one of my lovely customers, Jessica, this morning. She's been making my To Skye quilt and was having a few problems making the Tystie's beak. As it's one of the fiddlier parts of the pattern I thought a quick photo tutorial might help. Well, it was that or washing the kitchen floor ;-) I'm sure you share my priorities...

First prepare your pieces: mark a placement line on the 2½" x 10½" background piece using the small template from your pattern. Please note that there is an updated template on the Pattern Corrections page. Then mark a point ½" away from the lower left-hand corner of the 2" x 3" beak piece. I've used red fabric for clarity, yours will be dark grey.
