No, haven't been pinning or drawing the line. I was trying to do it the way the silly book said to. Put a piece of tape on my machine as a guide. Plus the ones I'm making are kinda small, not sure if I can pin em.

I should clarify that I'm making the star that's a square in the middle with eight triangle points around it. Yanno, the "easy" star. :roll: I've also heard it calle the sawtooth star.

Maybe later on if I make bigger ones, I'll try the drawing and pinning. The ones I'm making now are 5" so, those squares are kind of little... at least for me.
