    another way to sew a perfect seam

    This may have been shown before, but so many people ask about the 1/4" seam problem that I thought it might be helpful.

    Bonnie Hunter shows another way to sew a perfect seam. When the 1/4" seam is off just a little you might try this method.

    Interesting -- I will have to try that. I am surprised she wasn't slowed down.

    The distance BETWEEN the seams is the only one that really matters.

    I wonder if you could use that long wire quilting attachment instead of cardboard, you know the one meant to help you do parallel quilting lines. I tried to leave this as a comment on Bonnie's page but it wouldn't do it with my Google id.
