Fabric is bunching - any ideas?

I am having a bit of trouble sewing part of a quilt block together.  The seam is catching underneath, here is a pic:

I have tried adjusting the presser foot but that doesn't seem to make a difference.  I pin the seams down and take the pins out as I near the seam but it still bunches...  Does anyone have any tips to help prevent it catching and bunching?

Don't you just hate seams that won't behave? Have you tried ironing that little part just to get the crinkle out of the fabric before attempting to sew it again? The other thing you can do is sew with that side up and use your seam ripper to guide that piece through the machine. Sometimes seams need extra help.

Good Luck!
