Spinning Seams?

 

What exactly does spinning seams mean? And why should I do it?

When you have four or more seams coming together, it can create a lot of bulk in that area. This bulk makes it difficult to quilt over later.

Spinning the seams moves the seam allowance around so that they are less bulky, without resorting to scissors! 

This technique works for Four Patch, Nine Patch, Quarter Square Triangles, 8-Pointed Stars, etc. It will NOT work against a solid seam, like a Split Square Triangle.

If you have sewn over these threads, they are locked. So you don’t need to knot them. 

Watch this video to show how to lasso those threads for an easy finish!
