The Scant Quarter Inch, What Is It?

Scant Quarter Inch

If you've attended one of my lectures on the Amazing Economy Quilt, you've heard me mention what a difference it makes when you calibrate for the perfect scant 1/4". Here are two slides from one of my presentations.

I also read a great Moda Blog that you may appreciate.

To see a slide presentation from the Amazing Economy Quilt lecture check out February post below.

And if you are looking for a fun program for your quilt guild, contact me at

  1. can not find slide presentation from Amazing Economy Quilt lecture. As suggested in check out Feb. post below??

  2. Thanks for visiting our Blog!

  3. I'm new to quilting and thought "scant 1/4 inch" was only used when it was specified in the pattern.
    So reading this and the Moda blog, it is always used in piecing a quilt?
    I just made my first Stepping Stone quilt. I thought I had a perfect 1/4 inch seam allowance marked on my machine, but I had to trim all my squares to 7 3/4 inches. It still turned out just fine.
    I guess I need to recalibrate to a "scant 1/4 inch."
    Thank you for your help!
    PS - love your YouTube videos!
