How do you pin when you are piecing? From the right side or from the left. That is the question that came to me since I was having issues using a seam guide on my featherweight and my 99-31. I happen to be searching online and saw that someone put their pins in from the left side when using a seam guide. Voila the sewing went seamlessly that way!
I used to pin from the left side when I strictly sewed garments. When I started doing quilts, I noticed that most people pinned from the right and I switched. Little did I know that I was on to a good thing way back then. I now have returned to pinning to from the left. I think perhaps my piecing is even more accurate now.
Give it a try. The quilt police won't mind!
