Also, is the insert pattern's outer edge the same as the line on the other panel? It appears that way. And, I think that makes sense. Making a test piece now..
I think what he is saying Slodat is to make your insert just a little larger than it needs to be. Start sewing your seam from the center of the panel toward the corner. once you get to the corner and turn your 90 continue straight back to the end of the panel. That way you won't have any bunching at the corner. Next, repeat from the center to the other corner and do the same.

Hopefully Dan will be back sometime over the week end and clarify.
