    1/4" seam allowance tape?

    On a tutorial Jenny had some kind of 1/4" tape on her sewing machine making it easier to maintain the 1/4". Do you remember this? Thanks. Gina

      This is the one she uses...so does Misty. I bought some after seeing Misty using it, and I love it.

    The M* store has other ones too.

      I believe there is one by Quilt In A Day. I don't know if M carries it. It's a plastic that tapes down to your machine

        The cheap way is to find the quarter inch from the needle and putting painter's tape down so your fabric butts against the left side of the tape. When I first started quilting it's what I did.

          M* sells the diagonal seam tape (currently out of stock). Amazon.com has it too.

            Bee in my Bonnet has a seam guide that is placed directly on the bed of your machine. Fat quarter shop sells it. I have been thinking of getting one since it would be so helpful with sewing diagonal for binding or corner flips..HST's without having to draw a pencil line. I use painters tape now. They come in different colors, too.

              Painters tape is a great hack for many things......best of all, it is inexpensive and doesn't damage your machine's finish. I use the hack from this video to create a "block/lock" type ruler works like a dream and didn't cost $$$$$. She calls it masking tape (evidently a Canadian thing - don't use masking tape as we know it in the USA). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MIZVeB00Jk
