Sunday evening I pulled out Cobble Stones to work on. Made all the sashing strips, and pinned them to the blocks. When I laid them out on the ironing board, I noticed something. I didn't twirl the center seam on about half of the blocks. I don't know why I didn't do this except that maybe (1) I was tired or (2) I was having so much fun with the new iron.
You can really see the difference in how the blocks lay. The one on the right is twirled; the left is not twirled. Both blocks had the same amount of pressing.
Before I sew those sashings to the blocks, I'm going to repress and twirl. In the end I'll be a lot happier with the quilt. It's worth the half hour of extra effort, don't you think?
