I have also played with this using decorative stitches. For instance, let's say you have a table runner, place mat, pillowcase or other piece where you are using a decorative stitch around the edge to form a border. Using the end point function will actually alter the length of the stitch slightly (+ or - 10%) so that the corner turns without a pattern interruption.
I know many of you sew other things besides quilts. Can you think of other uses for this "end point" function?
Tomorrow I leave for a teaching trip to Dallas and San Antonio -- if you are in either area and want to hang out with me and take a class, here's a link to my schedule. I'll be at Richland Sewing Center in Hurst TX through Thursday and then Creative Sewing Center in San Antonio Friday through Sunday. There is also a shop hop going on in TX, so I'll be available to schmooze and demo on Sunday at Creative Sewing Center.
If you're doing the shop hop, be sure to stop in and see me!
