    This tip sounds like a keeper to me and I too have problems matching up the points etc. even though I pin pin pin I sometimes get those wonky tips so thanks for this tip and it is one I will remember.

    Hmmm, this IS one of those bonk-on-the-head moments. Although I've very happy with glued seams, I may give this one a try.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Thanks

    I found that your machine can pull off no matter how carefully pinned seams. I use a Pfaff with IDT, too.

    I found this out making sweatshirts - the underarm seam carefully pinned- and off when sewn. It was the bulk of the seam and the machine moving the seams.

    to jingle that said hard to remember the tips. I copy and paste the tips I want to remember into a word file called hints and tips and keep adding them to the file then when want to remember one I just go look at my file. works great. hope this helps

    How true, thanks for the great hints.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Thanks for the tip. It makes sense to stabilize the matching points before sewing the seam. Why didn't I think of that?!

    Thanks for the tip. It makes sense, and I'll definitely give it a try. Sewing long seams is not one of my favorite parts of quilting. No way around it, though, and anything that will give more accuracy is worth the extra effort to me.

    One more idea, while this is a great one, i find that if you line up the center of the strips and the sew out from each center that can help too. If your center blocks are aligned, you don't notice the outside as much, but if the center is off that makes the whole quilt look off.

    I believe Carol Doak uses a technique like that.
