I don't lose sleep worrying about whether my corners all match up perfectly. If I'm sewing something like a Drunkard's Path block, I'll use every pin in the house, but when I'm making most of my quilts, I match up the intersections with my fingertips and hold them in place while I'm sewing. It works fairly well.
When I made the pink and white Full Blown Quilt Lust, I did it my usual way. A few of the intersections aren't quite right and I started to wonder how much of a difference it would make if I slowed down and used pins.
So I made another one. In case you missed last week's version, there are 205 pieces in a 7" square, and you can find my tutorial here.
Honestly, I'm not convinced. My corners are a little more accurate, but the difference isn't as dramatic as I would have expected for the extra time and fuss. And I wound up with a pucker. In a quilt this tiny, any little pucker is huge! I think it's that center snowball block in the bottom row.
I absolutely love this itty bitty stippling. It's just fun -- and it flattens puckers into submission.
