Seamingly Accurate – when a 1/4" isn't enough

QuiltWoman.com is very excited to introduce the Seamingly Accurate™ Seam Guide.  Tired of having inaccurate seams? Is your sewing machine covered in masking tape for your wider hemming and sewing needs? Wish you had a REAL guide beyond the metal throat plate? Do you have a metric machine and need an “inches” guide for your new patterns?

Get it here!

Distributed exclusively by QuiltWoman.com, Seamingly Accurate™ is a new product allowing you to sew hems, apply trims, quickly make half-square-triangles and more without permanently altering your sewing machine! This product has been designed by Jen Eskridge, owner and founder of ReannaLily Designs. She found, in her commissioned sewing endeavors, that she really needed more sewing guide lines. It occurred to her that you might also.

To Use:

Click PLAY to watch this 3 minute Installation movie:

1. Peel off the backing of Seamingly Accurate™ to expose the repositionable adhesive.

2. Apply Seamingly Accurate™ to your sewing machine over and around the throat plate, lining up the black “needle line” of Seamingly Accurate™ with your needle as shown. Use any straight lines on your machine such as the edge of the throat plate to help you line up your Seamingly Accurate™ straight on your machine. Use a ruler to help you. Remember that you can remove and reposition it many times if needed. If you have an accessory case that opens or a removable table, or free-arm bed, make a cut in the Seamingly Accurate™ so you can open your accessory case or remove your arm or table without removing Seamingly Accurate™. You can position Seamingly Accurate™ any way you like.

3. Using a craft knife, cut around your metal throat plate and bobbin case. Remove this piece of paper, or you can mark where you want to cut with a pencil , remove Seamingly Accurate™ from your machine, cut with scissors, and reposition Seamingly Accurate™ on the machine. If you have an accessory case that opens or a removable table, or free-arm bed, make a cut in the Seamingly Accurate™ so you can open your accessory case or remove your arm or table without removing Seamingly Accurate™.

4. Now your guide is fitted to your sewing machine and can be easily used and reinstalled on many occasions.

Your throat plate position will vary depending on your sewing machine brand. ReannaLily Designs recommends removing that portion, in case you need access to that pesky bobbin case during your sewing afternoon.

Seamingly Accurate™
is excellent for making Half Square Triangles (HST)!

A.B.C.

A. Position your Seamingly Accurate™ paper guide by laying the Needle Line in line with your needle. Secure your paper Seamingly Accurate™ in place with clear tape. As you sew, make sure that the corner point is lined up with the Dotted ¼” line. This will keep your diagonal center line ¼” from your stitching line the entire time.

B. Sew down the left side, using the Seamingly Accurate™ as your guide. Flip the square unit and sew along the right side, still continue to use the guide, giving you a square that looks like the one pictured.

C. Cut the two halves apart along the imaginary centerline, between the two stitching lines. Press the new HST open. It should measure 3.5” square.


Seamingly Accurate™
is excellent for making Triangles and Continuous Binding!

When making continuous binding strips, you can cut many 2.5″ strips of fabric and join them with a 45* seam. This is method eliminates bulk when hand sewing or machine stitching the binding in place.

The 45* angle is also a very popular angle in quilt triangle construction. To join a two pieces of fabric with a 45* cut, the quilter needs to off-set the angles and Seamingly Accurate™ can help! The off-set should line up with the needle stitching line. {see the photo below}


Seamingly Accurate™
is excellent for making Wide Hems!

Need a 3″ hem on the bottom of your new drapery or garment? Try Seamingly Accurate™. Depending on your sewing machine’s area under the sewing machine “head” you can make perfect hems up to 5.5″ wide.

Many of ReannaLily Designs’ Patterns use Seamingly Accurate™ to help sew faster and more accurately.
