  1. In episode 1602, when you sew the Amish fan block, I noticed that you take pains sewing the concave to the convex shape, putting the convex on top and the concave on the bottom. This way, you have to struggle with bulk on the bottom and it is very easy to sew puckers and folds into the piece you do not see because it is on the bottom and the convex piece obstructs vision.

    When going through my training as a professional seamstress in Germany many years ago, I learned that it is always easier to sew the concave to the convex putting the concave on top. This way, you have the bulkier side on top and can manipulate it much better to fit exactly the shape it has to match (namely the convex on the bottom). Using a stiletto, this is much easier. Try it!
