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 -

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.

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 - ;))
