LHQ - 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 –


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 -

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.
