12 down, 12 to go! The blocks are definitely getting harder...way too many places to match up. After ripping these seams out about 3 times, I finally came up with the idea of using my walking foot. Duh! So the problem is that even though my piecing is accurate, fabric shifts and stretches and pulls...and in some of the places where there are 12 pieces of fabric intersecting, the feed dog pulls the bottom fabric away from the top at an uneven rate. Using the walking foot moves the top and bottom layers along at an even rate. I mostly use my walking foot for putting on binding; never thought about it for piecing.
