These quilt patterns are called Sewfasst® for one simple reason, the techniques for making patches are quicker and more efficient than cutting individual patches and sewing them together. All the techniques use strips, squares, and rectangles to make the various patches.
They are sewn, sliced, diced and sometimes sewn again, to achieve patches that can be used in these quilts and any others you plan to make. All the patterns include the formulas to make the patches larger or smaller, to incorporate into your own designs.
If you would like to take a class just to learn these techniques, it starts whenever you want to take it at the Academy of Quilting website.
In the pattern descriptions, patterns are rated as to difficulty. Rotary cutting and machine sewing experience are required for all levels.
