    Seams

    Even though this is a rather old post of Bonnie Hunter's, I found it really interested. I wondered if any of ya'll use this method or another . I think I am going to try this.

      Re: Seams

      Let us know how it works out. It seems like it would really slow down seaming but, in some cases, it might be worth it. Am I right in thinking this is a method primarily used for already cut strips that are slightly different in size? I can't see doing this when cutting one's own strips. Using yardage, which I do most of the time, I use my Shape-Cut ruler to cut accurately sized strips. I also always use my 1/4" piecing foot that has the little guide on the side. For those who don't have a machine that is capable of moving in slight increments to change seam width, I think this technique would work well when a scant 1/4" seam is required. I bet it would be great for making the log cabin blocks since they often come out not quite square.

        Hmmm - interesting. I use 2 1/2" strips to make HSTs and I often worry that the blocks may be different sizes since the strips could be different widths. Wonder if using my stitch-in-the-ditch foot (has the center guide) up against the cardboard would work?! Think I will give that a try when I get the chance. Thanks for sharing.
