    Your quilt you have shared is wonderful!
    Hi Marta mostly it is in the preventive stages. When you cut your HSTs you need to be aware of what your corners look like. Usually it is because the corners are not even between the two color fabrics. Your seam needs to come to the corner and be accurately placed.

    Here are the important things to remember. You can see my tutorial on this here

    If you need more help you can pm me! Hope this helps!!

    Look at the corner the light side is bigger than the dark side at the tip of the corner

    This one the two fabrics are evenly distributed at the corner. the seam is in the middle of both fabrics
