  6. I’m very new to quilting and absolutely love it. I really learn a lot from your show and enjoy the humor! I made a log cabin and the measurement when the top was done was exactly one inch off. I took one extra block I’d made to a quilting store and the lady there told me that I should be sewing ‘scant’ 1/4 inch seems. Is this correct? Thanks!

  7. I enjoyed this video. Do you have a video that explains “scant” 1/4 inch seams? I am having trouble acquiring this skill.

  8. I too thought you were to use a scant 1/4″ seam when quilting. Who is right?
