    Greetings Wilma! Glad to have you aboard. Can't give you an answer specific to stack and whack as I've never done one. I'm certain someone will have a suggestion for you though.

    Hi Wilma, I'm Ruth in Greensboro. I haven't done that specific project, but I did start Bridal Path and could not seem to get the seam allowance on my edges, and I found I was not pressing in the correct (all the say direction) as I sewed. I had some that were leaning against the 'grain' of the designs. and, of course my wiggle when I sew, lol.
    Welcome to a wonderful world of quilters! I love'em.

    Hello and Welcome :D:D:D
    Maybe try pressing your seams open and see if that helps... are you losing the 1/8" when you sew the two pieces together?
