Make Your Quilting Merrier with Martelli

Happy Holidays to All.  As always, I am working on a holiday quilt right into Christmas week.

Step 1- Align the frame

I embroidered 20 three inch cornerstones for the inner border and 4 five inch cornerstones for the outer border. I need to center all 25  designs- one at a time -and square them up to exactly 3.5″ x 3.5″ or 5.5″ x 5.5″.

Using the Martelli framing system, I completed each one in just 40 seconds. So if you do a lot of this kind of fussy cutting and you are wondering whether it is worth the investment to buy the framing system, I would definitely recommend trying it out.  I have a full set of these fabulous tools for students to use here at Kinsey Quilts studio or you can contact Martelli and order your own.

Step 2- Drop in the center square.


Step 3- Lift off the outer frame and cut around the edge of the square.

Ta-Da! Perfectly centered and cut accurately in just 40 seconds!









Disclosure: I do NOT receive anything for promoting Martelli products. However, I believe that folks who make good products should be praised. Martelli is a family owned and operated company with awesome customer service.

Happy Sewing to all, and to all a good night!

May your New Year be blessed and your bobbins be full.
