    The secret to Sharp Mitered Corners and
    Perfect Set-in-Seams is to accurately mark your seam lines.

    • The Bohin Mechanical Pencil is the best way to mark thin, accurate lines along the edge of the Prep-Tool.

    Sharp Mitered Corners & Set-in-Seams
    Using the Prep-Tool (comes with an 8-Page Booklet)

    Sharp Mitered Corners

    You can take all the guesswork out of finding the exact place to stop at a Scant 1/4" by marking it with the Bohin Pencil, using the Prep-Tool by Guidelines4Quilting as a Scant 1/4" guide.

    Butt the lip edges on the Prep-Tool up to the edge of your top.

    Mark the fabric along the outside edge of the Prep-Tool.

    Mark the binding strip at the same distance from the edge.

    Stop sewing when you get to the mark.

    Sew at a 45º angle right into the corner of the quilt top.

    Fold the binding strip straight up.

    Fold the binding strip back down, keeping the fold in the strip aligned with the top of your quilt.

    Continue stitching the binding to the top, taking a few back stitches when you start.

    Precise Set-In-Seams

    The Prep-Tool also helps you with sewing precise set-in seams.

    This is why we think
    the Bohin Mechanical Pencil is the best
    • The 0.09mm chalk leads draw very thin lines.
    • The “leads” are made of a waxy chalk that adheres to your fabric without soaking in like the ink in other markers.
    • Lines can be erased with the built-in eraser on the end of the Bohin Pencil.
    Tips
     
    To load a lead
    • Pull the red end with the eraser off of the marker and drop a lead in the barrel.
    • Replace the end and start clicking. It may take a dozen or more clicks until you see the tip of the lead start to come out of the tip of the pencil.
    • To prevent breakage, don’t extend the lead too far out beyond the tip of the pencil. Just extend a little at a time and click more often.
     

     

    Changing colors
    • You can load a white lead and click until it starts to come out of the tip, and then put a dark green lead, in the barrel for later use.
    • When you want to change colors, press and hold the end with the eraser down and you can pull the white lead out through the tip.
    • Start clicking until the dark green lead starts to come out of the tip and then put the white lead back in the barrel to keep handy for later use.
