Who Knew Sewing Straight Could Be Such a Challenge!

Do you ever find when piecing that your seams start out a bit off (or worse yet, with a bird’s nest), wobble in the middle or don’t match up correctly at the end? Or, do they tend to waver when you’re going over a hump where several seams meet?

If any of these happen for you, you’ll love the following video by Karen Brown from Just Get It Done Quilts.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!




PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
