    Hi, I'm fairly new to quilting, and would so much appreciate help from all the experienced quilters out there. I have a 1/4 inch seam guide foot on my machine, but when I use it, the seam comes out a little over 1/4. This throws off the whole size of the quilt block. Help?
    Thanks!

    Hi Rochelle! Would love to trade places with you!! I was born in San Diego...5th generation! :)

    As for your seam...does your machine have the ability to move the needle over a notch or two? If it does, try moving the needle to the right two notches and see what happens with that...

    Hello and welcome from central Alabama. I have the opposite problem. Mine is just shy of 1/4 inch so had to adjust by moving the needle.
