#3 illustrates how to pin sections together

Pinning the cornerstone sections together is very important. "But" the seam allowances together and insert a pin beside the seamline on both sides, but TURN THE PIN INTO A DIAGONAL position as shown in the illustration. For some strange reason, doing this makes the seams stay together perfectly! This is a great trick to learn when machine piecing at intersections. The seams will match up every time! AMAZING!
