How do you pin?

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!

Happy Sewing,
