Narrow Accents!

Modern Quilts Unlimited just published my article on how to add narrow accents to your projects.  It’s a very easy method for sewing crisp, even accent strips from 1/8″ to 3/4″ wide.

Here’s a Mondrian-style block I made several years ago with narrow inserts

There are options too numerous to mention!  Go get the magazine and make some accent strips, then please send me pictures of your creations.

  1. I remember thinking her method was very workable when she blogged about it a while back, and now I don’t remember how she did it. Not going to buy the mag just to check though. I did send a “congrats on being published” message to her.
