Precise Seams Are Important in Quilting

Hands sewing on machineOne of the first lessons a future master quilter must learn is how to sew a quarter inch seam.  Garment patterns are  based on a one-half inch seam, but quilt patterns are not. If you want your points to be pointy and your seams to match, practice, practice, practice to sew an accurate quarter inch seam if you are using patterns.

Once you are a master quilter or quilt artist, it probably won’t matter, because you can do your own thing. But until then, learning to sew a precise quarter inch seam is the most important lesson you can learn in quilt school.
