No Pins or Glue Needed Whenever This Tip Can be Used!

One thing many quilters often struggle with is losing triangle points in seams. While there are a number of things you can do, this may be the easiest tip ever.

Pat Sloan has written an article that expands on the idea. Notice how she recommends sewing just next to the point, instead of right up to it.

Pat offers other great tips, as well, in the following article.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
