Spinning seams -

I have been making 4-patches forever -

But it has only been recently -

That I finally figured out to “spin seams” -
Like everyone else -
YAY for me! - ;))


I often wondered what would happen -

If I accidentally “unsewed” an extra stitch or two -

Would I wind up with a “hole” in the middle of my 4-patch? - ;))

So I did an experiment -

And did exactly that -

I “unsewed” an extra stitch on each side -
To see what would happen -

And - YES - there is a small hole -
But NOT in the middle -
It’s where the seam ripper is in the photo -
It’s just to the side of center -

The center seam is still intact -
Because of the long seam -
That joins the 2-patch units -


Now I know for SURE -

What everyone else already knows - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I like the left-handed pressing. Figuring out the best way to press seams is my biggest problem. At least piecing by hand gives me a choice ... even if that choice is not always clear.

    1. Haha - glad you like the left-handed pressing - ;)) And I have the same problem - even when I follow a pattern that gives pressing "directions" - my seams don't always go the way they are "supposed" to go. I think some of them may be left-handed - ;))


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
