Leader Grips

Recommended Posts

I have attempted to sew a casing on my leaders, three times now and can't get it right....what's the secret to getting them straight? I have used the side clamps to hold them taut, I have used my channel locks to keep the machine going straight across, and yet, it doesn't happen...I am at my wits end! Would it be unheard of to just pin this casings instead of making myself crazy trying to sew them once again?

Jackie, I pinned the casing in and then pinned the quilt top leader to the take up leader to hold everything in place, then I stitched the quilt leader seam and then did the take up leader seam. Repeat for the backing leader.

I also used the side clamps and channel locks. Hope this helps.
