Hello Friends, it’s Tuesday again! You know what that means! Continuing with our discussion on piecing and points, here is something I do!
Oftentimes when I sew block units together when completing a block and there are no butting seams, I guess-timate where the intersection would be where the point forms. Then, I peel back the top unit and check to see if the point is indeed where it’s supposed to be.
Once satisfied it is, I would place a pin where the intersection point is. I would use a much finer pin than shown.
THEN, when getting close to the pin, I actually leave the it in, and use the handwheel to glide my needle over the pin instead of using the pedal. Works like a charm 99% of the time for me! Here is an example…
Alrightie – that’s all the 2 cents I have to offer today. Now it’s your turn! Happy Quilting!
