I love the way it looks, snips of thread and all. But there's something about sewing together half-square triangles that constantly challenges me. No matter how I arrange my piles, order the squares, label the fabric, or otherwise attempt to keep the design in line, some poltergeist (or my own hands) thwarts the process. I feel like I've been doing more seam-ripping than sewing -- a turned triangle, a totally mismatched seam, an errant seam allowance -- for this quilt.
What's your trick for avoiding piecing mistakes?
