Par­tial Seams

Annie's Quilting for the Home - - News -

Use par­tial seam­ing to join a va­ri­ety of un­evenly placed pieces in a block or un­evenly placed blocks or sec­tions in a quilt.

1. Lay out the block pieces or quilt sec­tions around the cen­ter piece or block as shown in Fig­ure A. 2. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure B, stitch A (cen­ter square) to B (first sec­tion) be­gin­ning ap­prox­i­mately 2" from the bot­tom cor­ner of A. Finger­press A away from B. 3. Work­ing coun­ter­clock­wise, join C (sec­ond sec­tion) to the A-B unit as shown in Fig­ure C, stitch­ing the en­tire length of the seam. Press seam to­ward C. 4. Match and join D (third sec­tion) to A-C edge re­fer­ring again to Fig­ure C, com­plet­ing the en­tire length of the seam. Press seam to­ward D.

5. Join E (fourth sec­tion) to the A-D edge again com­plet­ing the en­tire length of the seam as shown in Fig­ure D. Be sure to keep B (first sec­tion) out of the way when stitch­ing. 6. Com­plete the as­sem­bly by fin­ish­ing the A-B seam that was par­tially sewn in step 2. Fold over C and match the B edge to the A-E edge. Lower the ma­chine nee­dle at the end of the A-B seam, back­stitch to se­cure and com­plete the A-B seam as shown in red in Fig­ure E. Press seam to­ward B com­plet­ing the block or quilt sec­tion (Fig­ure F).
