  1. can someone please explain to me when piecing what seam allowances are used as I’ve only used the 1/4 inch

    1. Hi Ronnie – the seam allowance for quilting is 1/4inch, as you know. Some of the British magazines like quilting patterns written in metric measurements, so seam allowance for those tends to be 1cm, or sometimes people use 6mm. For other patterns I have written for bags/cushions etc., I tend to use 1/4 inch seam allowance, although for some patterns I have written for absolute beginners I have used a 1/2 inch seam. It will usually say at the beginning of my patterns, what the seam allowance is for the whole pattern. Hope that helps.

  2. Hello, I just love the way you make things so easy to understand. I just have a problem with the cm measurements,I don’t undherstand them ok; I really like all your free pattern. Keep up the good work. God bless you.

    1. Hello, I am still waiting on a answer to my question. It concerns the measurement in inches not cm because I don’t understand cm ok

      1. Sorry Betty, only some of my patterns are written in cm… because they were written for British magazines. I’m afra8d I don’t have the time to do conversions. You should be able to buy a quilting ruler with cm measurements.

  3. As a beginning quilter I have been watching all the tutorials and blogs I can. It is easier to learn on something small but still useful. Thanks so much for your ideas and tutorials. Keep them coming.

We always love reading your comments... go ahead, say hello!
