Poof, and it's gone. That's how I feel about Christmas. One day the radio plays carols, next day, back to the usual. thank goodness for cd's! I've been driving around with Faith Hills Christmas music in my car and shall until new years.
Lights are down, yard décor cleaned up, left overs finished, right? Not in our house. The tree stays up until the weekend after new years, that's been my parents tradition every year growing up and I continue the timeline. Stock pot on the stove this morning which means a few dinners of hot soup and biscuits in January, nights which can remind of this these past few days.
OK onto my quilting question. I've been working on this block, it's the first time I've made this pattern and this part is all hand pieced. I have NOT pressed any seams in any direction and here is my question. Do I press this out before stitching it to the background piece? It is not appliqued, but pieced in to two separate background pieces.
I'm pretty confident this will lay flat once it's pressed as we stretched it out by hand on the table yesterday at my LQS. So what's your expert opinion? Do I press before it gets the outside attached or after the whole block is finished?
Thanks for taking the time to ponder and reply, it's appreciated.
