Sewing Confrontations, Post 2: The One-Quarter Inch Seam

All November Long:
 
Hey everyone! It's a November Friday (wahoo!) which means that it's another Sewing Confrontations post! This one comes from my good bloggy friend Rebecca at Sew Festive Handmade. She's tackled sewing an accurate one-quarter inch seam, which is standard in the quilting world and basically required in every bee/swap/tutorial/pattern/etc. (but not all).

**Go see her post here!**  Leave her a comment and say hi - also, tell her YOUR problems with sewing seam allowances (if any!). I need to work on this one as well. I think, over time, I'll be a better sewist if I can just master accurate rotary cutting, and this topic!

Did you start working on your Sewing Confrontation for November? Don't forget, link up to win fabric, and share with the world, is Nov. 30!

  1. I'm off to read that post -- I use a quarter inch foot and sew relatively straight but still something goes wrong in the sizing! And I'm working on my "too many WiPs", which as you know, was my real confrontation!
