Reference information:
"Set in" seams
These are seams where a "V" meets. The seam should be sewn on the sewing line only and not into the seam allowance or it will not lie flat. The 8 point star is typical and as with hand stitching you leave the quarter inch seam allowance at the beginning and the end of the unit unsewn. It is useful in this instance to always transfer the sewing line onto the reverse of the fabric with a marker before sewing.
