Joli Sayasane discusses the advantages of having your fabric torn opposed to being cut. Some of the benefits are that it helps you find the strait of grain, improve your piecing, and eliminate wavy borders. If it isn’t torn, snip in about a half inch from the side it and rip it yourself to see where the grain is. If your lines aren’t completely on grain, learn how to straighten it out.
