LHQ - Scant 1/4 inch


LEFT-HANDED QUILTING – Scant 1/4 inch


As you all know –

Every once in a while –

I lose my scant 1/4 inch –

SO –

Here is one of the ways I test it –

Stitch a line – just a regular line –

Then stitch another line – 1/4” to the LEFT of the first one -

Turn it around –

And stitch another line – 1/4” to the LEFT of the other two -

You will then have three lines stitched - like so -


Put your ruler on the piece with the inch mark on the center line –

The other two stitched lines should be just to the INSIDE of the 1/4” marks on either side of the center line –

TA DAH!!

That’s pretty damn close for me –


Now – if I could only stitch a STRAIGHT line –

I’d be OK…;))



Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew -

  1. I have a sewing machine, "1 / 4 inch foot," which is leading the edge of the fabric. Thus, exactly one quarter away from the weld will be.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
