We sponsored this contest back in March 2014. If you already posted your answers then, just post "Already Answered" in the comment section below. If you haven't, test your quilting I.Q. by taking the following quiz and post your answers in the comment section below also. Enjoy reading other QCA members' answers as you scroll down on the page. Cheating is allowed.

 

Question 1: What is a "Scant Quarter Inch" ?

a. Slightly less than a ¼".
b. 240 thousandths of an inch.
c. 6/25 of an inch.
d. All of the above

Question 2: Why should you sew scant ¼" seams when piecing?

a. So the finished sizes of your pieces come out accurate after sewing them together.
b. To compensate for the width of the thread and the fabric in the folded seam.
c. So your toes don't get cold.
d. Okay, I'm seeing a trend here and going with all of the above again.

Question 3: How can you make sure you sew an accurate scant ¼" seam allowance?

a. Get a micrometer that can measure thousandths of an inch.
b. Sew three 2 ½" strips together and adjust your seam allowance until the middle piece ends up measuring 2".
c. Get the amazingly useful Prep-Tool by Guidelines4Quilting.
d. Gee... I'll bet d. all of the above is technically correct, but something tells you're going to say c. is the best way.

Question 4: How can you sew a scant ¼" if your machine only has a ¼" guide or no guide at all?

a. Adjust your needle position to make it a scant ¼" guide.
b. Stick something in front of your presser foot, like mole skin, stacked up tape or a bunch of Post-it-Notes, lined up at a scant ¼" from your needle to guide your fabric.
c. Use the amazingly useful Prep-Tool to take the guesswork out of adjusting your needle position or to set the handy dandy, just the right thickness to guide your fabric, self adhesive Seam Guide that comes with the Prep-Tool, at a consistent scant ¼" from your needle!
d. Now you're just embarrassing yourselves with these self promoting all of the above answers. But I have to admit that the Prep-Tool by Guidelines4Quilting does sound amazingly useful.

Question 5: How can you always sew sharp mitered corners and perfect Set-in-Seams?

a. Accurately mark your stopping points an exact scant ¼" from the edge of your fabric.

d. We'll just jump to d. because we guarantee that you will mark your seam lines perfectly, every time with the amazingly useful Prep-Tool by Guidelines4Quilting. And it's also a Precise Point Trimmer! How's that for Amazingly Useful!

I pick answer D to all the questions. And by the way, I do agree that the Prep Tool and Seam Guide are both GREAT!
