The directions were easy to follow even for a first timer - but I'm having a problem with the seams of the log cabin blocks. She's had quite a few seams come lose right in the middle of the seams, sometimes an inch in from the edges. At first I thought it was my sewing machine, but I haven't had trouble with any other sewing. I'm able to use a blind stitch & fix the seams by hand, but this is an ongoing problem with more seams showing up as time goes on.
My question is, could this have anything to do with the blocks being made in assembly line fashion? I wondered if there was some method I don't know about to lock the stitching being you couldn't really back stitch to lock them because you cut lengths off. Any ideas on what is going wrong or how to avoid it next time? I suppose it's possible it's the fault of my sewing machine, but it hasn't shown up on any other sewing. Thanks for any ideas.
