    Don't know why we haven't thought of things like this before now. I just started using washable elmers glue for current project that I am working for basically the same thing. I put a dab on the ends and where the seams meet up and then use a pin as a back up. Though I'd share another way to try matching up seams.

    I've been sewing through the matching area with a basting stitch on machine until they match up well, then sewing the seam and removing the basting stitches. Only on the most complex blocks. Similar to what you are doing. Great minds!

    They also sell a thin fork pins which work very well & much quicker

    It's the simplest ideas, like this one, that make for the best, most useful suggestions. Thanks so much.

    Rhonda, did I miss what kind of thread you use? It looks thick. Going back to check.

    I just use regular thread. I have always just bought my thread at Walmart. The cheap use to be 50 cent now is $1 thread.

    I just use a plain old thread and needle. Just one strand and double and knot at the bottom. I don't usually knot but you get the picture. Nothing special just take a stitch or two in the same place and trim off the thread leaving a small tail.

    Brilliant!! That will make paper-piecing easier when you have several pieces to put together. Thanks!!
