In this video -------------------- Have you ever seen a quilt that seemed impossible to piece? If so, it might have been a Bargello quilt. This classic quilt is known for the way the fabric colors ebb and flow, creating beautiful movement. Hi, I'm Angela Walters, and I'm going to show that making a Bargello quilt block isn't nearly as hard as it looks. It just takes a little creative "unsewing" - and I'll show you exactly how to do it! To get started on your bargello quilt block, pick out some of your favorite fabrics that vary in color. I've narrowed my selection down to 10 gorgeous colors, but you could use more or less. To save time use precut 2 1/2" strips. Lay them out in the order you prefer. There is no one perfect way to place them, try experimenting with some different arrangements. For my bargello block, I am placing these beautiful batiks from lightest to darkest. Now that you have the perfect layout, stitch each strip together along the long edge until you have one big strip set. I sew them 2 by 2 as it's easier to manage the fabric that way. Press all the seams to the side, being careful not to distort the edges. Now make a tube by pinning and sewing fabric 1 and fabric 10 together, right side to right side. It probably goes against every quilting technique that you may have learned, but it will make sense in just a moment. Move the tube to your cutting mat and crosscut the tube into strips. First, straighten up the left edge and then begin cutting the strips. You can cut them all the same size, or you can vary the widths to give the quilt an even more stunning look, which is what I am going to do. I am going to cut the first strip an inch wide and add 1/2" to every cut. For straight stripes ensure that the top and bottom seam are parallel while you are cutting Once you cut the strips, don't let them get out of order. This will help prevent mixing them up. In fact, you may want to label the strips so you don't forget what order they are in. I am speaking from experience! This is where the magic happens! The bargello effect happens when you remove the stitching between different fabrics. Starting with the first row, remove the stitching in the seam at the top. Open it up and lay it out flat. Do the same with row 2 by removing the stitching in the second seam. Repeat with all of the rows, changing the position of the removed stitching each time. Counting the seams will prevent you from removing the stitching from the wrong one! Remember, the number of the row is how many seams you count down. When the strips are all laid out, you can see the stunning effect. Now, all that is left to do is sew the strips together! To make sure that all the points match, carefully pin the strips together. Perfectly matching points aren't necessary, of course, but it does help the overall effect of the bargello. Removing the pins as you go, sew all the strips together using a 1/4" seam allowance until you have the finished block. I'm using my fingers to manipulate seams so that they're nested into each other. Again, I sew the strips 2 by 2 which also helps me keep them in the right order. Pay special attention to the placement of the strips. I can't tell you how many times I have accidental flipped one around on accident. Once they are all sewn together, press the seams and admire your stunning bargello block. Now that you can see how easy it is to make the bargello quilt block, just imagine all the fun possibilities you can create by adding more fabrics or combining them in different layouts.

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video -------------------- What do you do if you want to make intricate quilt blocks with points that match every time? Try paper piecing, of course! Hi, I'm Angela Walters. I'm going to show you how paper piecing can help guarantee perfection when it comes to complex, and not-so-complex, quilt blocks. Let's start with a few tips for getting started. First, you need paper! For this project, I'm using thin foundation paper. Any type of paper will work, but a thinner paper will be easier to rip out later. You'll also need to print out your paper-pieced quilt pattern. You'll need a copy for each block or portion of the block, depending on the pattern. It will have numbers depicting the order the fabrics should be sewn on. The lines are your sewing lines. You will be sewing directly onto the paper. Place fabric 1 so that the wrong side of the fabric touches the underside of the pattern. The fabric should overlap the section marked as #1 by about an inch. Holding the paper and the fabric up to a light will help ensure that it is placed correctly. Pin the fabric to the paper to keep it from moving. Pick a scrap of fabric for section number 2. Make sure that it covers the section and extends past the sewing lines. Place fabric for section 2 on top of fabric 1 so that the right sides are touching, re-pin on the paper side, holding both pieces in place. This will keep them from shifting during sewing. Remember shorten the stitch length on your sewing machine, 1.0 will make it easier to rip out the paper later on. With the paper on top, sew carefully along the line between section 1 and 2, beginning and ending a few stitches beyond the line. On your cutting area, carefully fold the paper back along the line you just stitched Using a rotary cutter and ruler, trim the fabric 1/4" from the paper This is an important step, I left this out the first time I paper pieced and it was a mess! Flip the block over so that the fabric is on top. Using a dry, hot iron press the second fabric into place. Rotate the block again so that the numbers are showing. Crease the line between #2 and #3. Trim the excess fabric, adding the ¼" seam allowance. Take your third fabric and align the raw edge with this cut edge, making sure it overlaps into the next section. Sew on the line between the 2nd and 3rd section Repeat the previous step of folding the paper back and trimming the fabric away 1/4" from the seam. Press as before. Continue sewing the fabrics onto the block in the order shown in the pattern. When all the sections are filled in, it's time to press and trim the block. I like to spray the block with starch and iron it with a dry, hot iron. This helps prevent distortion when removing the paper. If you decide to use starch, be sure to let the block dry before trimming Once dry, it's time to trim the block - including the 1/4" seam allowance. Before you start cutting, check to see if the 1/4" seam allowance is on the pattern or not. Trust me, it's heart-breaking to piece the whole block, only to trim it incorrectly! To sew the blocks together line them up, pin and sew. Once you're sure the block will not be sewn to another unit or paper pieced block, it's time to remove the paper. This is the perfect chore to do while watching your favorite tv show. Once you're sure the block will not be sewn to another unit or paper pieced block, it's time to remove the paper. This is the perfect chore to do while watching your favorite tv show. If the paper is tough to remove, you can lightly spritz it with water. Or use a seam ripper to get the paper out of tight corners. Whether it's a simple quilt block or a more complex one, knowing how to paper piece will help ensure perfect points every time.

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ------------------------------ An invisible or concealed zipper can really give your garment a professional edge. And it's easier to sew than you think! Hi, I’m Angela Wolf! Let me show you my foolproof way to sew an invisible zipper. Here I have an invisible zipper 2, two pieces of fusible interfacing and the skirt pieces. Choose a zipper that's 2 inches longer than the opening. First, stabilize the seam where the zipper is going to be inserted My fusible interfacing is cut about an inch longer than the zipper opening and is wide enough to cover the seam allowance and another half of an inch. I'm trimming one side of the interfacing with pinking shears to prevent it from showing through on the right side of the garment - that's an especially good tip for lighter weight fabric. Line up the interfacing along the top and side raw edges, and press by holding the iron for about 3 to 5 seconds, lifting and pressing. Next, prepare the zipper by pressing the zipper teeth away from the zipper tape. Make sure your iron is at a lower setting, (you don’t want to melt the zipper! ) And just quickly press, see how this fold opens? – this make it much easier to sew! Now - take a look at this handy line here on the zipper tape - that will be good guide for you to follow with the needle when you come to sew Here are both pieces of fabric - and my zipper. Start with your zipper closed, this will hopefully stop you from sewing it in backwards. Flip the zipper with the right side facing the right side of the fabric. Insert one pin to keep the zipper lined up and now unzip the zipper all the way Line up the zipper tape inside the edge of the seam allowance. You want those zipper teeth to land right on the seam. So if your pattern calls for half-inch seam allowances you would line up your zipper right here. This is an invisible zipper foot, which makes it real simple to sew. / See these grooves underneath the foot? ...they line up with the zipper teeth and glide right along that edge as your needle goes through the hole. you can also use a standard zipper foot, the difference is the foot will glide along the edge of the zipper teeth like this. Line up the standard zipper foot with the needle right next to the zipper teeth, using that handy line as your guide and stitch. This snip represents the bottom of my zipper opening, back-stitch and one side is finished. Zip up your zipper and find that snip - now with a fabric marker make a mark across from the last stitch - this will show you where to end your stitches. Well done! Take a bow! - or take a break - then start on the other side! Now turn the edge of the second piece of fabric right side toward the right side of the zipper, pin it in place, and open the zipper all the way past the last stitch. Flip the fabric, remove that pin and start pinning the tape in place Pushing the finished side of the zipper out of the way, you're now going to stitch down this side. Just put a couple pins in here Change the zipper foot to the other side, line up the needle right next to the zipper teeth, and stitch. When you get to the the mark representing the last stitch, back stitch It is very important that the stitches on each side of the zipper tape are even right here. If they're not, go back and stitch a few more stitches on the shorter side close the rest of the seam. Place a pin along the seam allowance underneath the zipper tape, push the zipper tape out of the way as much as possible. Add another pin. Back at the sewing machine line up your needle here, starting a quarter of an inch above the last stitch, just on the inside of this stitch line. Push the zipper tape out of the way, back stitch twice and stitch. Switch to a standard presser foot and starting on that last stitch, sew the rest of your seam closed So let’s take a look at our finished zipper! See how neat the seam below looks? And on the right side you can hardly see the zipper teeth, which is perfect since it’s an invisible zipper! That’s how easy it is to insert one!

In this video -------------------- Strip quilts are so fast and easy to make! They are the perfect go-to pattern when you need a cute quilt, quick. Hi, I'm Angela Walters, and I want to show you how making a quilt out of strips, from start to finish, is oh so easy. First, pick out some fun fabrics. I'm using flannel which means my quilt is going to be so cozy. Don't worry about finding fabrics that match perfectly. The more variety, the better! You can choose as little as 4 prints or as many as 13! Decide which fabric is your favorite, this will be the most prominent color in the quilt. Cut it into four 3" strips. Cut a total of eighteen 3" strips from the coordinating prints. Pair a strip of your favorite fabric and three strips of co-ordinating fabric and / pin and sew with right sides together to make a strip unit. Don't forget to press the seams to the side. It'll make cutting the blocks much easier. Rotate the strip unit, straighten the left edge, and carefully subcut into three 10 1/2" blocks. Repeat with the rest of the fabric, making more strip units and more blocks just as you did with the first set of fabrics Once you have the blocks, this is where the design comes to life! Lay out the blocks in a row, rotating every other block. Rotating the blocks creates a zig zag effect. It really gives a basic block a fun look! Now you can pin and sew the blocks together in rows And then do the same to sew the rows together. Don't sweat matching up every seam - close enough is good enough! Press it and just like that you have a fun, fast and easy strip quilt top! But it isn't a quilt until it's quilted. Don't let the thought of machine quilting deter you from finishing your quilt. I promise it's easier than it looks. Here I am going to use a smaller quilt made of 4 blocks. But all the steps are the same, no matter the size of your quilt. Pick out a fabric for the backing of your quilt and cut it so that it is at least 2" bigger than your quilt top on all sides. Place a piece of batting, roughly the same size on top of the backing. Again, make sure that it lays flat. A wrinkle in the batting is no fun to deal with while quilting, trust me. Place the quilt top on top of the batting. Using safety pins, baste the layers together. This helps ensure that none of the layers move while machine quilting. For this quilt top we're going to quilt straight lines. A walking foot, if you have one, is your best bet for this type of quilting. Starting from a corner, quilt a line diagonally to the opposite point. See how the walking foot feeds all the layers through evenly and helps prevent tucks? Continue quilting onto the next block, going from corner to corner until you reach the edge of the quilt. Repeat in the next row of blocks and continue until all the blocks are quilted with the same parallel, diagonal line. I like a lot quilting in my quilts, so I like to repeat the diagonal lines in the opposite direction. Keep quilting until your happy with how it looks. Once that's finished, all you have to do is trim it and add the binding.

In this video ------------------------------ Quilt binding got you down? Learn foolproof methods for perfect results every time! The binding on a quilt adds the finishing touch. And I'm going to show you a foolproof way to make perfect binding everytime! First, prep the quilt. Trimming the quilt as straight as possible will make sewing on the strips go as smoothly as possible. ... Using a rotary cutter and a long ruler is the best way to go! Next, choose your binding fabric and cut out the strips. I cut mine to 2 1/4" wide, but if you like a slightly wider binding, you can cut them out at 2 1/2" Now it's time to sew the strips together. It's easy as long as you take your time! Lay one strip face down and draw a 45 degree angle from one corner to the opposite side. Lay the strip face down on a second strip so that they form a right angle. Sew carefully on the line. Open the strips up to make sure that they lie flat. If they look good, trim to a 1/4" from the outside of the sewn line. Repeat with the rest of the strips to make one long strip of binding. Using a hot iron, press each seam flat and then press the whole strip in half giving yourself a nice crisp edge. Keep it as even as possible. Now it's time to attach it to the quilt. This is where taking the time to carefully prep your binding will come in very handy! Open one end of the bindng and trim it at a 45 degree angle, then iron the edge in 1/4" Place the open edge on the quilt and stitch about 1" Fold the binding over and begin stitching about 2" from the beginning Stich 1/4" around the quilt, with the raw edge of the binding lined up with the edge of the quilt. When you get to the corners, fold the binding up and then back down before continuing stitching the next side Once you get close to the begining, tuck the end of the binding into the opening and stitch the rest of the way Flip the binding over and sew the folded edge down, working your way around the quilt. There you have it, the perfect finishing touch for your quilt!

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ------------------------------ One of my favorite seam finishes is the French seam, simply because there are no raw edges inside the garment. It's great on slinky fabrics like this silk charmeuse Hi I’m Angela Wolf, let me show you how easy it is to sew a French seam. If you use a plain seam you'll need to finish these raw edges of the seam allowance to avoid fraying. But a French seam's seam allowance is already finished as part of the process! Check your sewing pattern to determine what the seam allowances are. I find it easiest to change my seam allowances to 1 inch. / Say my pattern has seam allowances that are 5/8 of an inch - I'll add 3/8 of an inch to each seam allowance before cutting out my pattern. Unlike a plain seam, you'll start with the wrong sides of the fabric facing each other and stitch with a half-inch seam allowance Trim the seam allowance to about a quarter of an inch Press the seam allowance to one side - it’s a good idea to press from both sides of the seam just to make sure the fabric lays nice and flat Now fold the fabric along that stitch line, enclosing the seam allowance, and press again. Use a tailor’s clapper if you have one for a nice crisp crease. Next, stitch right along this pressed edge with a half-inch seam allowance, to encase the raw edges. Press the seam allowance towards one side. Remember if you’re using this seam in a garment you'd press towards the back of the garment... See how nice this looks, and it’s super easy!

If the thought of free-motion quilting a large quilt top sounds overwhelming, then let me show you how to quilt as you go. The best part of this technique is that when the sewing is done, so is the quilt! First measure your quilt block and cut out backing fabric the sames size. Then cut a piece of batting that is a 1/4" smaller all around. Layer them together into a quilt sandwich Next, quilt the block using a walking foot or a free-motion quilting foot be sure to leave a 1/4" unquilted around the block Quilt each of the blocks in your quilt this way. Next, put two blocks right side together and carefully sew just the top pieces. Use pins to keep backing fabric and batting out of the way Once you get the two blocks joined on the top layer, press your seam. Then smooth the backing fabric over the back of the seam, folding over one edge and pinning. Hand or machine stitch the seam, being careful to not leave any gaps. Once your blocks are all joined as rows, assemble the rows togethers the same way. Once that's all finished, simply bind your quilt and enjoy! And that's how you manage quilting a large quilt by quilting as you go.

In this video ------- Clean, beautiful results can be a piece of cake. Learn 4 secrets for working with fondant - without the fuss. Fondant is a rollable icing that is very easy to work with and gives your cakes a chic and sophisticated look. Here are some of my tricks for stress-free fondant. When you're rolling fondant you may see little bubbles... but you can use a straight pin to pop them as you go. Keep your eye on the pin though!  Put it in a piece of styrofoam so it's not just floating around! Now after you pop a bubble, it may leave a mark.  That's an easy fix. Just take a piece of fondant and rub it over the blemish, this is called "polishing". Sticking is another problem you might have. To keep the fondant from sticking to your work surface, you can use a dusting of corn starch or powdered sugar. I prefer sugar. When you are rolling fondant, you are making microscopic tears in the surface, kind of like building muscle. The sugar will become part of the fondant again but corn starch could cause what we call Elephant skin. So use it sparingly!...unless you are making an Elephant cake of course. When you are rolling fondant, consistent thickness can be an issue I like to use spacing bars to keep it even and uniform. Now that you know how to roll out perfect fondant, try using it to add decorations Roll out the fondant out and cut shapes. Use a little piping gel or water to glue them in place. If you are gluing them on a buttercream cake, the buttercream is already sticky.....so no glue necessary. It's that simple, using just fondant we've made an fun and professional looking cake.

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video -------------------- Give a new life to your favorite T shirts by turning them into a T shirt quilt! I'll show you how easy it is in this step-by-step video. Hi, I'm Angela Walters! To get started on your t-shirt quilt, gather tee shirts that have sentimental value. Don't worry if they don't all match in color--the memories they represent are the most important part of this quilt. Sixteen shirts is the perfect number for a small lap quilt, it will give you four rows with four shirts in each row. You could use more or less depending on how many shirts you have or how large you want the quilt to be. Roughly cut out the front of the shirt with scissors. The cuts don't have to be smooth, we will straighten them out later. Since tee shirts are usually made out of knit material, they can be stretchy and a little tricky to work with. To help make cutting and sewing the shirts easier, we are going to use fusible interfacing. Use an iron to bond the interfacing to the back of the shirt. Be sure to read the manufacturer instructions for specific iron temperatures. Now that the shirts are stable and easier to work with, it's time to trim the shirts. / It doesn't matter what size they are as long as they are all the same, and the graphic or design is as centered as possible and doesn't get cut out of the block. For my quilt, I am going to cut the blocks 12" square. Using a t shirt ruler like this, or a clear plastic template will help you see where the design will be once the shirt is cut. I'm using a rotary cutter and ruler mat to carefully cut out the block, but you can use scissors. Once the blocks are cut, it's time to decide how you want to layout the quilt. Arrange the blocks in rows until you are happy with the design. You could order them chronologically, or by color. There is no wrong way to make your t-shirt quilt. HERE I'M JUST USING FOUR BLOCKS (ON CAM) Line up the edges of your blocks and pin them together to prevent any of the layers from slipping while sewing. Sew the blocks together with a 1/2" seam allowance. If you have a walking foot for your sewing machine, be sure to use it. It will help feed all the layers evenly as you sew. Press the seams open - ironing them flat will make the quilting process easier. Now line up the seams so that all the points are matching, and pin. / Take it to the machine and sew, again with a half inch seam allowance. Make those seams are sewn open. / Press everything nice and flat and your quilt top is finished!. Now we have to turn those blocks into a quilt by - guess what - quilting it! Pick out a fabric for the backing. Cut it at least 2 inches bigger than your t shirt quilt top on all sides. With the backing face down add a layer of batting and then place the t-shirt quilt-top face-up. Baste the layers of the quilt together using safety pins. Now it's time for my favorite part, the machine quilting. Grab a walking foot and lower the feed-dogs on your machine. (use SF014, lesson 9, shot 9-4 for feed dogs) (use SF018, lesson 5, shot 5-22 for walking foot) Place the quilt sandwich under the needle and begin stitching - I like to start in the center of the quilt and work outwards but you can start wherever you like. See how the walking foot helps feed the thick layers of fabric through the machine. Stitch your way back and forth across the quilt, avoiding thicker emblems or heavy paint. Quilting through those areas is no fun. Continue until you've quilted the whole thing. You are almost done, all that's left is to bind the raw edges of your quilt. First, trim the edges of your quilt sandwich so that they are straight. Choose your binding fabric and cut it out into strips using a rotary cutter and ruler or scissors. I cut mine to 2 1/4" wide. Then connect the strips together. One the end of one strip draw a 45 degree angle from one corner to the opposite side. Then at the machine lay that strip face down on a second strip to form a right angle.

In this video ------- Cake pops are super fun and easy to make. Here's how to make and decorate your own. To get started let me show you how to make the cakepop dough First add the cake crumbs to the mixer.  This is a great way to use up cake scraps! Turn the mixer on low and add the icing a little at a time. Now you can use buttercream, but I like to use cream cheese icing for a richer flavor. Once you achieve a cookie dough like consistency, the dough is ready. So you may not have to use all of the icing. To make the pops, you will need to roll the dough into bite size spheres.  I like to use a scoop and then split them in half so all of the pops are the same size. Next, insert the sticks all the way through Now we will refrigerate the pops for a couple of hours.  This is an important step!  You want to make sure your pops are not too cold or the coating will crack!  See as the pop's insides warm up, they expand, and if the outside coating has set, it might crack. But this can be prevented by pulling a few pops out at a time and let them warm a bit You can also add a little oil to your coating chocolate!  This will allow the coating to harden more slowly and BONUS it makes the chocolate thinner which is easier for dipping! For a two toned look, we are gonna double dip.  Dip the pop once making sure the chocolate touches the stick (this will hold the pop on the stick after they have thawed). Once the first coat is set, dip again in a different color, but only half way! To add sprinkles, you will need to work quickly and get the sprinkles on the pop before the chocolate sets, so have them handy!+ To add a little texture, put some chocolate to a piping bag, cut a small hole and stripe each pop. And there you have it: Three easy cake pops!

In this video -------------------- Want perfect points every time? I'll show you how, as we complete this playful patchwork quilt project! Hi, I'm Angela Walters, a quilt designer and an instructor on Craftsy dot com and I am going to show you how to make perfect patchwork points every time. The secret to getting perfect points starts with prep. Pay special attention to your cutting to ensure that you start with the correct size blocks. This is where the old advice, "measure twice, cut once" comes into play. Cut slowly and pay attention to the ruler, making sure that the cut stays consistent. Next, let's make some half square triangles. Cut two squares that are the same size. Place them right sides together and pin. Sew a line a 1/4" from the edge along all 4 sides. Pivot at the corners with the needle in the down position. Using a quilt ruler, cut from corner to corner twice to make 4 half square triangle blocks. Then press the blocks open and trim the corners even. See how easy that is? Use pins to hold your blocks together as you piece, it will prevent the blocks from slipping or moving out of place. Be sure to remove them as you go. When sewing the quilt blocks together, make sure that you have an accurate 1/4" seams. measuring the seam on a test block is a good way to ensure that you are accurate. You can also use a 1/4" sewing foot or a piece of tape to ensure that your seams stay consistent. Use a scrap piece of fabric as a leader before sewing your blocks, this will prevent the edge of the block from getting warped as you sew. Ironing also plays a large role in perfect piecing. Use a hot iron and press the seams ....don't iron back and forth vigorously, or you may warp the block. Be sure to press each seam before moving onto the next one. Using spray starch will help the seams lay nice and flat. Nest the pressed seams to ensure that the points line up when assembling blocks. It will guarantee matching points. There you have it, perfectly pieced points every time!

In this video ------- Frosting a cake is easier than it looks. Let me show you how to do it like a pro. The first step to frosting a cake is making sure your buttercream is at the right consistency! Place the buttercream in a mixer on low for a few minutes to smooth it out.  You can also use a creme brulee torch on the side of the bowl to soften it a bit Next, we have to do a crumb coat.  This is a thin coat of buttercream that will hold the crumbs in place for the final coat.  Place the cake back in the cooler for at least an hour to set up before doing the final coat. Once the crumb coat is set and the crumbs are trapped, we can finish frosting the cake For the final coat, frost the top and sides, using a straight edge or cake scraper to smooth and a spatula to remove the excess. Now you could stop there, or you can get a little fancier. Texture is a great way to decorate a cake without using any additional elements You can add texture to a cake with a spatula.  Just run the blade in the same direction with quick strokes. Or you can do an advanced version using a piping bag.  Pipe a vertical line of beads on the side of the cake. Then take the spatula and smooth each bead to one side. Then repeat until you make it all the way around the cake. Lastly cake combs can also add texture AND they are super fast and easy.  Once the final coat is smooth, use the cake comb in one swoop across the cake to imprint the design! And look at that, you've got three easy frosting techniques to try out on your next cake!

This quick and easy strawberry cheesecake is perfect in summer or when your oven is busy doing other things! And if you want the free recipe in full - just click this i in the top right corner. Here's everything you'll need for the crust... In a food processor grind up the graham crackers, then add the melted butter, nutella, brown sugar, salt and cocoa powder and blend. Press the graham cracker crust into a springform pan and refrigerate for at least ten minutes. Now here's what you'll need for the strawberry sauce topping: In a saucepan add the berries, sugar, vanilla bean and water and heat until they are soft. Puree the fruit. I like to use a hand held immersion blender for this - it's one less container to clean. In a small bowl, add cold water to the gelatin, stir and allow it to sit until it "blooms" like this, which can take up to 2 minutes. Transfer the gelatin to the hot strawberry mixture and gently stir over a low heat, just until the gelatin melts. Reserve 3/4 cup of the strawberry sauce for the top of the cheesecake. Allow all the sauce to cool slightly, but not too much or it will set up. Now here's what you need for the cheesecake batter: Combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract and mix on medium low speed. We don't want too go too fast or we'll incorporate too much air and the cheesecake won't be as smooth. Add the strawberry sauce, and mix. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream to form stiff peaks. Gradually fold the cream into the strawberry cheesecake mixture. Pour the cheesecake into the refrigerated crust. Pound it on the counter a few times to flatten it out. Allow the cheesecake to set for about 2 hours in the refrigerator. Once it is set, pour the remaining strawberry sauce over the top - another bang will ensure it's smooth! and return to the refrigerator for another 30 minutes. Run a hot knife around the cake, before popping open the springform pan. This wonderful no-bake cheesecake can be made a day ahead, and in fact, it tastes even better with a little more time in the refrigerator.
