Wednesday Giveaway

Margaret Wild is the lucky winner this week! If you are not Margaret, you might want to actually buy your own Corner Cut tool :-). Here’s why: If your 1/4″ seam allowance is too big, or too small, you need a Corner Cut tool! It’s good for many things, not the least of which is checking your seam allowance. Here’s how it works:

  1. I just love to quilt. I’m a beginner but I’ve found my notch. I sure hope I win this giveaway. I’ve never won anything in my life and and I’m 62. Wouldn’t it be neat to win this.


      • Me again. I did look and you are correct. I just went over to my machine and checked the true 1/4″ and it lines up exactly with the mark on the throat plate and the edge of the foot, with nothing sticking out beyond the edge of the foot. So the main point for me is to never let fabric stick out beyond the right side of the 1/4″ foot. I think that’s where a whole lot of quilters go astray.


  2. The video was very detailed and informative. Amazing how that little smidge of a difference could impact the precision of a block and eventually the whole quilt. Thank you for sharing and offering a chance to win.


  3. The 1/4 seam allowance is so so important. So many tools to choice from. I did really like the You tube you shared on this morning’s post of the inner points. Lots of good tips!!!! Thank you!


  4. This tool looks like it would really help keep pieces in line. I think adding this tool would really help keep everything lined up. thanks for showing this as probably would not have even known it existed as our local shops do not carry lots of tools.


  5. Becky,
    That 1/4 inch is always hard for me. This would be a perfect fix.

    I love your blog and the way you highlight certain tools. It’s such a good thing.


  6. The plague of fashion sewer turned Quilter…the 1/4 seam. I would love the tool because the question is do we sew a scant 1/4 inch to adjust for the thread, sew a true 1/4 inch and let the seam police fly a kite. Thanks Becky for all your help. You are still my hero. V.


  7. Boy, oh, boy, maybe this tool could help me! I seem to do okay until I get to the bottom, then I veer to the right. What’s up with that?
