Sewing Back-to-School: Ironing and Pressing

IMG_6878-1

I’m guest-posting over at Sew Sweetness today as part of Sara’s “Sewing Back-to-School” series—a month’s worth of informative “back-to-basics” articles. My post covers everything you ever wanted to know about pressing and ironing, but were afraid to ask. Or too bored by it to ask. Or something like that.

Seriously though, pressing is so much more important than you might think when it comes to accurate piecing. My tips just might help your next quilt come together a little better. So what are you waiting for? Head over there!

And thank you, Sara, for having me over to your place today. : )

    What a great post! The biggest thing I learned is to use a dry iron – I had no idea!! And I've always pressed my seams open… I never knew that there are situations where pressing to the side is preferable.

    Awesome tips. I also think that pressing to the side causes slight but more shrinkage to your block (does that make sense?).
