    Patrice,
    There is no such thing as cheating in quilting.
    No rules!!! :lol:
    Where else can you find an "Anything Goes" attitude? Gotta love quilting!

    Carla is right....small clips close to the innie's will help it to turn under. Just remember it is only for the innie's....outties are just that....outties. The clipping actually helps in creating a false bias which enables it to turn more easily as it provides the needed give. After that it is all downhill. Also...are you right or a left handed.....righties turn best when going counterclockwise and lefties turn best going clockwise...or so it is said.

    I'm doomed! I'm right handed and I stitch clockwise and I also stitch at the bottom of the project instead of the top. My sister sews the way you suggest. I just could not make that work for me. Sigh! I always have to do things the hard way, I guess.

    Can I reteach my self to go the other way. It's not worked so far. Obstinate!

    I've never used a glue stick with my projects. I've tried to steer clear of glue. I know many people do use it and I've considered it but that's as far as I've gotten. I did make snips but my stitches always look like they are going to pull out or the fabric is going to totally fray on those innies. I'll just pray they hold together for a little while. My tulip is finished and I'll be very, very careful to select future patterns with few (if any) innies or outies! Hmm... circles? Another whole basket of worms!!!

    Don't worry....like I said it is " as they say..." I quilt whichever direction gets it done. Some days are like that too. As long as you are comfy with it ....who cares.
