The quilt saga continues ......

I have discovered I cannot cut or sew a straight line to save my life!!!!

But, I am not deterred, I will carry on!

these magically turn into ..............

I must be a glutton for punishment ...............  I think I am enjoying this  ;-)

  2. Hi Cathy, I think it's looking good so far! You've picked some lovely fabrics. I have to tell you I've made lots of quilts and find it really hard to sew a perfect 1/4" seam. Two hints I was given I'll pass on to you....I did take the 2nd myself and would'nt manage without it!!!
    1. Measure 1/4" from your machine needle to the side plate and stick down some masking tape so the edge runs on the exact 1/4". This is where you hold your fabric when you guide it through the needle.
    2. Buy a special quilters foot for your machine called the Bigfoot!!! it is 1/4" wide with 1/4" markers for when you get to corners!!!

    One of my machine has a 1/4" foot but I still prefer my Bigfoot!!!!
