    True enough about Jenny using the outside edge in her tutorials, but other quilt instructors use the inside. So it's not an either/or it's really just personal preference and the key is to pick one and be consistent throughout that quilt project. (In fact, I've actually heard Jenny say this in a few of her tutes.)

    I use the outside edge as well. Ditto on being consistent - I found out the hard way that it really does matter.

    Actually, you can use either. Just be consistent throughout your project, whichever you decide to use.

    Having said that, I almost always use the outside. But some precuts have a very deep pinked edge while others have a very shallow pinked edge. The deep ones are the ones where I will use the inside to have a more stable seam.

    And, welcome!!!!

    Seam width when using precuts

    This is my first time visiting this forum. I can see that being part of a quilting forum will be a delight.

    I have a question. I've never sewn using precuts when exactness of the seam width has been necessary. I'm doing one now. The question is: When using precuts (specifically, a jelly roll) do you measure the 1/4 inch seam from the outside edge of the zigzag, or from the inside edge of the zigzag?
