Back To Basics – Quarter Inch Seam Test

After a bit of a break, our Back to Basics video series has returned!

Have you ever wondered why your quilt blocks have come out short, despite accurate measurements of your cutting?  It may be that your quarter inch seam is not a quarter inch!

This video outlines a simple test you can perform with some fabric scraps.

Fabric scraps should measure 2.5 inches wide, length does not matter.  Sew your three scraps together, and the middle piece should measure exactly 2 inches wide!
