    Question: on the 3″ block, would you suggest a 1/4″ seam or 1/8″ seam?

      Good question Elizabeth! I usually play it by ear, but if I’ve got two seams intersecting or overlapping seam allowances I tend to go for 1/8″ on these tiny blocks. Sometimes I’ll go for somewhere between 1/4″ and 1/8″, or do one piece of fabric 1/4″ and the other 1/8″.For the joining seams between two units I’ll usually leave them 1/4″ and press them open.
