Sample text

The + sign indicates that you should add a “hair” to the cut size of the interfacing. Save the leftovers for another project. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the fusible interfacing. Fuse the interfacing and cut a total of 20 squares 5˝ × 5˝. FABRIC ▪ From the border fabric: Cut 3 strips 3½˝ × WOF*. ▪ From the binding fabric: Cut 4 strips 2¼˝ × WOF*. * WOF = width of fabric Making the Blocks Seam allowances are ¼˝. Use the 10 red tie 5˝ squares and the 10 black tie 5˝ squares to make 20 Half-Square Triangle blocks.

Your ¼˝ seams are accurate. The needle needs to stitch closer to the fabric’s outside edge. The stitching needs to be farther from the fabric’s outside edge. Remember that the adjustment will happen in four places —to both fabrics in each seam. The right line-up for a perfect ¼˝ seam may be a combination of a different needle position with a point on your presser foot or throat plate. When you have found the right combination for a perfect ¼˝ seam, save the test piece; you can use it to make a diamond placement guide.

Check and correct: Ideally, after pressing, check to be sure both triangle corners line up with the corner of the base square or rectangle. To correct it, press the fold open and restitch slightly closer toward the center of the block. On the right, crooked sewing resulted in crooked corners. You can correct both problems. To correct it, you would have to rip out stitches and resew the seam, leaving visible holes from the previous stitching (typical with most silks). If your stitching is too far toward the center, your folded corners will not meet.
