The Urban Sampler Quilt

These are the instruction for making one block.

2 (2″ x 12 1/2″) strips
Sewing Machine Set-up
Every sewing machine is different and in order for me to get a scant 1/4″ seam allowance I need to move my needle one position to the right of center. Thread and fabric thickness also factor into producing a scant 1/4″ seam – so do a test. If you lose even a couple of thread widths with each seam you will end up short. I also use my 1/4″ patchwork foot with guide.
I pin my seam, it helps with my accuracy.
It’s really important to press your work as you go. I have found that my accuracy increases when the fabric is pressed well. You can never press too often!
Happy to answer your questions, leave a comment below and I will get right on it.
