This step was to trim the blocks to size, making the trims wonky. I have to admit that wonky is not quite my thing, so I cut them all even and the same. Boring, yes, but that's me!
And look at the huge pile of trimmings in the corner!
What a shame to cut off soo much. Took a great amount of will power to toss it too. Oh, well, I'll let this one go.
Melissa likes to press her seams open, and again, that's not me. I pressed to one side, so that the pairs nested, then sewed the joining seam. Trimming a few stitches allowed the seams to spin, creating a nice flat center!
Want to see how?
Unsew the few stitches in the seams that are stitched across by the long joining seam.
Tease the seams apart, and press the bottom seam to the left, and the top to the right, such that all seams press in the same direction.
And there you have it! A nice flat center! Try it on your next block!
