Piece Triangles (and Other Shapes) Smoothly Every Time!
When piecing triangles, are they ever sucked down into the throat plate? The result is a mangled mess that takes some doing to fix, if it can be fixed at all.
Prevent that from happening with these two tips from Pat Sloan. They’re both simple and produce perfect triangle points when piecing.

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!
