The Importance of Nesting Seams
We are adding the pattern to your Quilt Basket.
The pattern was added to your Quilt Basket.
"Almost ten years ago when I started sewing, I read a sewing tip. It recommended always splitting seams and ironing them flat. This method protects thread the best and prevents wear and tear and possible breakage of seams. For almost ten years, I ironed all my seams open. It was tedious work, but I knew it would make for the best quality quilt. (Even though I had a terrible time getting my corners to line up well.) Learning to nest your seams, my friends, is a quilter’s best friend."
