OK ladies need your help.
I am working on my third quilt. I really struggle with the 1/4 seam allowance. I have the 1/4 foot, have put tape on my throat plate and everything but still have problems. We are making a block of the month. I am on block #4 and just finished it. Cutting I am sure was correct. Well the block measures 12" maybe 12 1/8 . Not the 12 1/2 as the others. What to do!!!! This block had so many seams and I really do not want to try and make another one (probably don't have enough of the material anyway) . Is this going to create major problems when I go to put this quilt all together!!! I get so frustated with things not working out. Ripping out and resewing. I would think things should get easier as I go along but I continue to struggle. Maybe quilting is not for me. Suggestions?
