    Ok, this is the first wall hanger for me. It doesn't say anything about size seam allowance. I would think it is 1/4 inch. I am working on Georgett's Snowflakes by Winham Fabrics. Does all quilting project use 1/4 inch? Input to my project would help, I just did all the cutting and would love to start. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, 1/4" is the standard, unless other wise stated :D:D:D

    Yes, 1/4" for all piecing is the norm. However, when you are piecing a backing for a quilt, use a 1/2" seam and press it open.

    Unless a pattern says otherwise, they are meant to have 1/4" seam allowances.

    If you have the pictures on your computer, when you are typing a new post scroll down a little and click on "Browse", choose your picture and hit ok, you will have a picture appear in your post when you hit send. Don't hit preview or your picture will disappear.
