Step 10 - Clipping the Seams

Next, clip all of the exposed seams on the top of the quilt.
Then clip around the edges of the quilt. Take your time with this and if your hand gets tired, rest and come back to it later.

Be careful NOT to cut into the seam line. If you do accidentally, just put that area of the quilt under your presser foot and sew over that section again, securing your stitches at the beginning and the end.

Tip: Spring scissors make this task much easier and are a good investment if you plan on making several of these quilts.
