Here are a few Quilt tips....
PINNING ~ When you want seam lines to line up perfectly, first match up seams so they alternate and nestle at the intersection. Pin diagonally through the pieces, catching both seam allowances. Remove the pin when you get to it to avoid stitching over the pin. For tricky or bulky seams, try using a washable glue stick instead of pins.
PRESSING ~ Your iron is as important a tool as your sewing machine. Pressing seams ensures accurate piecing. As a general rule, you will get better results if you press on the front (printed) side of the fabric. Set the seam by pressing the sewn unit flat, sinking the stitches into the fabric (see Step 2 above). Then press the seam to one side, usually toward the darker fabric. Doing this will help align the seams perfectly and reduce bulk. Use a hot, dry iron and press in an up and down motion. Use a light mist if needed, but be wary of steam--after all, cotton shrinks.
