I'm not a great one of following the crowd. Books, films, politics, whatever - I'll definitely listen to people's thoughts and opinions but my decision will be my own. I like what I like, irrespective of whether it's trendy or popular.
So when popular opinion said "inset seams are very difficult" I took it with a pinch of salt and went ahead anyway. Good grief, my first quilt was a Lemoyne Star complete with inset seams and satin fabric!
I've never really had a problem with inset seams until this month's Craftsy BOM. I'm not sure what it was about that seam - I think my seam allowance might have been off - but try as I might I couldn't get it to fit perfectly.
Here's the block.
See the slight buckling at the bottom corner? That's the little monkey.
But I still stand by my stance that inset seams aren't difficult, it's just my skill that let me down this time. Onwards and upwards! Now where's that Lemoyne Star gone?
