“Leader”

Scant 1/4" Seam

A leader refers to a small scrap of fabric that you run through your machine before stitching patchwork.  It leads you to sew more accurately.  You also don’t have to worry about those loose threads when starting on your patchwork as the threads end up on the leader.  When you finish the seam you can sew on to another scrap of fabric called a “follower”.
