I am currently making hsts for my Cheddarback quilt blocks and I find that Gay often gives the instructions in a way that you make the hsts larger. She uses the method of putting two squares together, mark a line on the diagonal and then stitching on either side of the line and then you cut them apart, press and trim them to size. I don't usually make my hsts this way because I just really dislike the fiddly business of trimming down to size.
Anyway....I am so not a perfectionist when it comes to that 1/4" but I did realize that the 301 presser foot is actually perfect for getting that 1/4" stitch line. It is exactly 1/4" from the left side of the presser foot to the needle....who knew...not me anyway. I am sure this knowledge will come in handy to me someday. :)
