This is how I pin pieces. I pin the start and end. When I have an intersection that includes a triangle, I double pin. I stick a pin in vertically and then put one pin on top and one of bottom of that vertical pin. This really holds the fabric right where I want it to be. I then mark with a mechanical pencil a line to make sure I sew exactly where I want to.
A beautiful piece cut with the Accuquilt Go. Gosh did that make it faster to cut and more accurate!
Blocks are getting assembled.
And a finished block! I love how the blue stands out and the orange sparkles.
Come back Wednesday for more on this project!
I hope you get to quilt today!
This block looks great! Love the color combo.ReplyDelete
I used to ignore the suggestion of using pins and of course I lost many points and things just never lined up right. Now I pin and double pin as needed. Your block looks amazing and so worth the extra time spent pinning.ReplyDelete
