Accurate ¼” seams

Having trouble with patchwork pieces not matching? Maybe you are not using a quilters ¼” seam. A “quilters ¼” seam” is a seam allowance that provides the correct result. Check your seam allowance by stitching together 2 strips of fabric 2” wide by about 6”. Open the strips and measure across the width. This should measure 3 ½” for the perfect quilters seam. This is usually a slight 1/4". Adjust the placement of the strips until you are stitching this result and mark your machine bed.
