I'm having problems getting the center to match. Any tricks?
Sew just one pair of the one-tenth units together at a time. Press the seam open. Add another section, again matching, and again ironing the seam allowance open. Sew five together to make a half. Repeat for the other half. The halves should be straight across without any bowing. If not check your seam allowances to be sure they're even (ie. the width of the seam at the wide and narrow end are the same). If they're the same, then the bowing may be caused by ironing. Repress to reshape. Sew the two halves together, carefully matching the center points. I usually sew the center portion (about 2") first with long stitches, then check for matching, especially if I'm having problems. I hope these suggestions are helpful!
