Cut 1/4" Seam Allowance Before Borders Added

Pin It

After your quilt blocks are sewn together,check and make SURE your seam allowance is 1/4"

These quilt blocks are set on point and I always cut "offsetting" triangles bigger and I MUST cut to a 1/4" seam allowance.  Doing this your border will be easier to sew on, as points will not be cut off and the seam will be straighter.


Just one of the Many Quilter's Tricks !
