|Tips of the HST’s and intersecting seams of the rows of the NCD block.|
Step 1: Place pieces Right Sides together, looking down on the raw edges of the pieces, match the corresponding seams.
Step 2: Place a pin 1/4″ from the raw edge directly through the stitched seam on one piece at 90 degrees.
Step 3: Slide the tip of the pin through to the right side of the second piece and find the corresponding seam 1/4″ from raw edge. Push the pin through keeping it straight. This pin is called the setting pin.
|Pin is set at 90 degrees to the seam at the 1/4″ mark.|
Step 4: Place a pin on either side of the setting pin, using a small bite for both and the tips just on the stitch line. Remove the setting pin.
|You can also try with one pin set very close to the setting pin.|
Step 5: To preserve the points of the intersecting HST’s, sew 1 thread beyond the point. This will compensate for the fold of the fabric.
