They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, well it is true. This video gave the best explanation on how and why it is important to achieve a scant quarter inch seam allowance. This is much better than the explanation I tried to give.

  1. The first video really mad it clear….not just HOW to sew a scant 1/4 inch but also shows WHY in a very clear manner.

    1. Debbie,

      Most of the video’s on YOU Tube are excellant with good production values and a lot of great information. Some of them are just regular quilters trying to help other quilters… they do not have professional help to record their efforts but they have a lot of HUTZPA to get out of their comfort zones. I applaude them for doing. I love YOU TUBE VIDEOS… they can teach you a lot of what to do and what NOT to do.

  2. Hi Nonnie. These videos were really helpful to me. I never really understood why a scant quarter inch made a difference. I’ve been sewing for many years and agree it’s helpful to go over the basics from time to time. Thanks!

    1. I understand the concept of scant quarter inch… but trying to explain it / teach someone how and why to achieve the SCANT proved to be beyond my capabilities. When I saw this video I had to refer to it…. I wanted to make sure I cleared up any confusion.

      Thanks for stopping by to my podcast… feed back really helps… Nice to know I am not just talking to air.
