Want to Step Out?

Bird step-out.

Thinking of writing an entrancing article for a quilt magazine? Want to teach a class, write a book, or film a project for YouTube? Then you are going to need something called step-outs. Step-outs are views of your project at different stages in the construction.

Stems and leaves step-out.

Step-outs are used as images to illustrate your book or as part of the how to process when filming. You need a lot of fabric to make them. You need even more than you think you need. Step-outs take a lot of fabric!

Tomorrow Frieda Anderson and I begin our online class for The Quilt Show. (It’s free!)  In preparing for the class, I created many step-outs for the Birds and Flowers project. There are bird parts, flower parts, stems, leaves, woven collages, and background fabrics. There’s even a step-out of the quilt in the stitching stage.

Stitch step-out for the bird.

And now that the filming for The Quilt Show is complete, those step-outs are available to make new quilts! That’s what I love about fusing. Nothing goes to waste!

Please join us tomorrow on The Quilt Show where we introduce you to the wonderful world of fusing. And look for the step-outs throughout the series.
