    1/4 inch seam question

    I am making a very simple 4.5" finished block patch baby quilt measuring 36" x 40.5" and I will be hand tying it. I have shortened my stitch to 1.5 to prevent unraveling. Does anyone think it's necessary to reinforce the seam with a zig zag stitch as well?

    I wouldn't zig zag your seams. I have utility quilts that are tied and are nearly 100 years old and they have held together just fine. They were sewn and tied by hand.

      I don't think you would need to do that. 1.5 is pretty tight.
