Rosita Pillow

Description
Intermediate | 20 min
Taught by Liza Lucy
This stunning zig-zag pillow will sharpen your cutting, sewing and patchwork skills. Liza patiently walks you through the step-by-step process of cutting parallelograms, with tips for accurate cutting and marking that will make the sewing process go smoothly. Each stripe sequence is created in a vertical row, then the rows are sewn together to create the striking chevron effect. Once you've practiced these skills on a pillow, you'll be ready to apply them to your larger quilt projects.

What you will learn:
— Precision measuring and cutting patchwork pieces
— Marking seam allowances
— Stabilizing bias edges
— Trimming pillow cover to prevent cat-ear corners
