For those of you who follow me regularly know I am not a “real quilter”. In fact I like to refer to myself as an “accidental quilter”. I was a shop manager for a long time – a long time ago – selling sewing machine, teaching classes and there for the serger and embroidery machines. However, I was always happy to help with quilt fabric selection, I was just not a big quilter. In my life I have made and completed about 10 quilts. It’s been since Heidi my 10 year old girl was a baby since I made my last quilt. Since then I have pieced many things but always let someone else finish the quilting. This new technique recently was shown to me and I thought, I’d like to try that. If it’s as easy as it says, then I might enjoy this. Today I am pleased to show you the Slit ‘N Sew Method by Quilter’s Paradise.

Who invented the Slit ‘N Sew method
The president of Quilter’s Paradise is Sue Mezera.
Sue’s trademarked brand, CutRite™ which encompasses lots of different laser cut notions, tools, rulers and fabric kits.
Sue and her husband are both engineers who spent many years in the high end telecommunications industry and several US Patents were awarded them. The Slit ‘N Sew method was introduced early fall 2018 and the line has continued to grow.

What is the Slit ‘N Sew method
According to the Quilter’s Paradise website the Slit ‘N Sew method is “a truly revolutionary improvement by allowing piecing to be done quickly and easily each and every time!” and I couldn’t say it better.
How does it work
There are templetes which fit together by cutting around the outside and then there are slits to align each piece. They are pretty easy to use. Simply use a rotary cutter to make small cuts that are precisely located on the templates. Then proceeding a slit at a time, line up the next slit from each piece that is being pieced together and sew to that slit. The result? A perfect piecing job in no time! In the video below I show three different ways I found to cut around and mark the slits. Can’t wait to see which is your favorite method.
