    I feel your pain. I have the same problem. I find that accurate seams, accurate cutting. Helps. I found that a scant " seam (1 or 2 threads short of ")helps. Keep trying it will get better:)

    I will stick a pin thru the two pieces, where the points if the triangles meet. Then, while making sure that the pin is vertical, I will properly pin the seam. I find that an 'Angler 2' guide also helps.

    The MSQC has an awesome tutorial on Pinwheels. Jenny Doan is so great as an instructor. I watched her tut several times and tried it. My points are perfect every time. Give it a look:)
