Quilting 101 - Pinning Tips Part One

Pinning Units Without Points or Angled Seams

When joining seamed pieces without points or angled seams (Diagram 1), butt opposing seams together and pin at an angle to secure. (Diagram 2 - Right Handed -- Diagram 2 - Left Handed) VERY IMPORTANT... take at least one stitche past the seam line before removing the pin. This will insure that the seams do not separate as you sew over them. If you have pinned as shown in the diagram, there will be room for one or two stitches before having to remove the pin.
