I am making my 1st quilt, with old jeans & flannel shirts. Do I snip seams to 1/4 inch or use pinking shears & leave longer? Right now I have 1/2 ". Also, how do I finish the outside edge when done?
I cut some of my quilts 1/4 and others 1/2 just depends on what you like. I just sewed a decorative stitch all the way around edge of quilt about 1/4 inside from the snips. I would cut the fringes not sure if pinking cuts would fringe right. Wash after your done maybe couple times to make it fringe better.
