The problem: sewing two triangles tips together where the two triangle points don't separate as they go through the feed dogs. The points are too small to be held by a pin. Even my favorite fine patchwork pins are too big for this job.
The solution: Acorn Seam Align Glue
What's different about this glue than any other fabric type glue?
It was developed to be used instead of pins when sewing your seams. I can't say that I would use it instead of pinning, but when piecing those troublesome triangle tips together, it works wonders!
Just a small drop on the right side of the fabric at the very point will keep both fabrics glued together as you sew them. The glue is formulated so it sets up quickly, you can press over it, if need be, you can "rip" it out and use it again. It doesn't leave a lump of glue and does not gunk up your needle. Washes away when you wash your quilt, is non-toxic and scent free!

Thanks for the tip about gluing the points. Sounds like the perfect solution.ReplyDelete
I've never considered using glue in that way before. Cool!ReplyDelete
