DIY And Crafts. But once I had cut all the triangles – 34 patterned and 34 background triangles, I realised I wasn’t actually sure how to sew them together to achieve an accurate 1/4″ seam allowance, and maintain pretty points throughout the quilt. Thanks for mentioning this. Hi Leslie – This is the most precise and easy to follow explanation. It’s critical to get that right so the blocks measure accurately and all the seams line up as they are supposed to. “Wt” is not standard from brand to brand, which is maddening, Leslie’s tips, but because of different thicknesses of thread, different fabric thicknesses of fabric (cotton with gold on it is “painted” gold, and therefore thicker), I take a different approach to scant quarter-inch seams. Place a quilter’s ruler under the presser foot and slowly lower the needle until it is a thread’s width to the right of the 1/4″ mark on the ruler. Now check your email to confirm your subscription. (window.AmazonUIPageJS ? Then, I promptly ignored this information and started making quilts using things like an accurate 1/4″ foot and following the seam guide on my machine. The image below shows an accurate 1/4″ seam allowance. You will get four identical triangle blocks with little tails at … Sew directly down the seam line. Finished Size: 43″ x 63″ ... on top of the batting square the the solid square. (window.AmazonUIPageJS ? Thank you so much.

Your email address will not be published. Instead of going about the intelligent way and looking up some tutorials, I decided to experiment with seam allowances between my triangles. This is a stupid question, but did you know that Aurifil was a scant 1/4″? This should leave you with a nice 1/4 inch seam allowance on both triangle units. So, for example, suppose you have a 45 degree diamond and want to know the dimensions of a 45 degree diamond when you add a 1/4" seam allowance. No quilt templates are used in this quick cutting method. This prevents the seam guide from interfering with the feed dogs when you’re sewing. Sew this seam with a 1/4″ seam allowance and press the seam allowance open. .b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-div{border-bottom:1px solid #e7e7e7}.b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-table{width:100%}.b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-table-td{padding-right:12px;border-right:1px solid #e7e7e7;white-space:nowrap}.b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-table-td:nth-child(n+2){padding-left:12px}.b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-table-td:last-child{border-right:0;width:100%}.b2bhawks-quantity-pricing-table-summary-emphasized-text{display:none} }); You can see in the picture below that I used the tweak/twirl/furl method to press mine. I ALWAYS press my seams open. For example, for a 3" finished half-square triangle, cut a 3-7/8"-wide fabric strip. Q: (window.AmazonUIPageJS ? It explains why I have had a problem with my sizing after I finished the blocks. Sew consistently accurate scant 1/4" seam allowances using our Prep-Tool. .buynow-education-pointer{display:block;position:relative;height:.5rem;margin:.5rem 0;border-bottom:1px solid #D8D8D8}.buynow-education-pointer .caret{display:block;position:absolute;bottom:0;height:1rem;width:1rem;border:0 solid #D8D8D8;border-width:1px 1px 0 0;transform:rotate(-45deg) translate(-.7rem);transform-origin:center;background:#fff}.buynow-education-pointer .caret:not([data-position]){display:none}.buynow-education-pointer .caret[data-position=right]{left:75%}.buynow-education-pointer .caret[data-position=center]{left:50%} AmazonUIPageJS : P).load.js('https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31yoeTcupOL.js?AUIClients/AmazonUICalendar'); Now, pin the two triangle rows without corner stones to opposite sides of the medallion (the sides you sewed the first two strips of sashing to.) But, I move my needle one click to the left or right, depending on which side the foot lays on the seam. #wow-twister-loading-dim { Since the screw holes on modern machines are a different size thread to the ones on the Vintage Singer machines I would advise only using a screw that is provided for your machine, like the one for the foot holder, or one that came with an accessory you may have bought for your machine – such as the circular attachment for the 15000 which I have. A half square triangle refers to the two triangles that are cut from one square.
