Stars again

Yay, stars!  I did it!  I conquered flying geese and folded corners!  Wow, does this ever open up possibilities for me.  

I really struggled with these two elements, until I realized that moving the needle was the way to handle them.  So I move the needle to the right 2 clicks (I have an older Pfaff without the gazillion needle positions), and then my sewing line is a pinch over the actual sewing line.  And it works!

There are many quilters who can handle that scant 1/4" seam naturally without having to resort to playing with needle positions, but I'm not one of them.  So, my scant 1/4" seam is 3 clicks to the right, and now my geese and corners are 2 clicks to the right.  

I made a note and stuck it onto the machine, 'cause you know I'm going to forget this.

Love your stars, and so glad you have found a solution to your 1/4 dilemma. Love the fact that you had to write it down too! I feel so much better now!
