    Oh yeah, I hear ya. It took me several tries before I got it into my thick skull. For a while, I even pinned the diagonal line together so I could check to be sure I was sewing it right. But, you know what they say -- "If you're not ripping, you're not quilting!"

    Yep, that's how I do it too. Nice, flat invisible seams every time.

    I use the Fons and Porter template to make the diagonal seam. Once you've done it a few times it is easy!!!!!

    Sharon Shambers has a video on YouTube called "Binding the Angel" it is in three parts, I think it is the second part that shows her joining the two ends using Elmers School glue. It is the best way to join the ends that I have ever tried. You get a perfect mitered join every time.
