Thanks for the tip. I noticed the same thing when Marianne was piecing a block on the show yesteday, but haven't tried it yet.

I had tried this before. I saw it somewhere, can't remember where. I do it at the top, don't always remember to do it at the sides. Thanks amandasgramma.

I thought it was just me and everyone didn't have this problem. I, too, saw this yesterday on F & P. I thought it was the camera angle. Thanks, I'm ready to try this tip.
