Accurate seam allowances

I've been working on the Eldon quilt from one of our favorite designers, Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. Edyta always has something exciting going on, and new ways to make old blocks. This pattern includes templates for cutting the pieced strips accurately, and I found that I really had to watch my seam allowances so the log cabin squares wouldn't be too big or too small.

Using the Clearly Perfect Angles cling on my sewing machine, I carefully sewed all the seams together in the log cabin blocks, then trimmed them with the template provided when I was done. I also marked the corner dots so I would know where to stop and start the seams.
