I wanted some of the striped components to lean in a certain direction on the New York Beauty improv quilt. Here is how I planned and sewed the stripes to end up on the slant.
First, I drew the piece on freezer paper and numbered the pieces.
Second, I cut apart the pieces and pressed them to the reverse side of the fabric, lining up one edge (the left) with the stripe.
Next, I cut apart the pieces apart, leaving a seam allowance. The pieces (with the freezer paper pattern still ironed to the back) were matched at the outer and inner seam allowance and sewed together.
The final step was to trim the inner and outer curved edges to 1/4", and leave a larger seam on the outer seam.
