Perfect Your Skills: Points

Each month, learn a fun trick or tip to make your quilting easier and more polished!


Are your points not lining up perfectly? Try this!

After sewing together two block units, stab a pin through the point where the block units come together.


Leaving that pin in place, pin pieces together on either side of the seam line.


Leave the pins in place just until you are about to sew over them. The result will be perfectly aligned points in your block.
