1. I had many projects that needed pressing.
2. Pressing does matter. It can save or kill a quilt top.
Hooray! My Halloween Apple Core top is done. It is 13 (unlucky number) apple cores wide and long.
So.... I only sewed 2 of the long rows wrong. Ripping out is always painful, but when it has been hand sewn, waaaaa :( ::::::
This was some tricky pressing. It was difficult to avoid un-pressing previously pressed areas. Know what I mean?
After about 40 minutes and 3 refills on the steam iron and a dose of starch, it turned out great.
I spent time pressing lettering onto Steam-A-Seam. These will be on the borders of the Apple Core Quilt. can't read them? he he
Here is a little project I worked on recently and was able to use my pressing stick, which helps to keep from un-pressing.
This was a lot of pressing.
These were left over blocks from my Lincoln quilt. I'm going to machine quilt it and use it as a runner.
Finally, I pressed a lot, and I mean a lot of bias stems for my Jubilee quilt. Here is the first border that is ready for stitching.
Good Luck with all your pressing matters!
