I'm on an advice-seeking bender at the moment, but I hope you don't mind as you guys always deliver the goods!
When I wrote about my patchwork bunting tablecloth, I got some really helpful advice from Sew K2 about seams:
"The only suggestion I have is that unlike clothing construction where you iron your seams open, you should iron your quilting seams to one side. Usually you iron the seam towards the dark. Occasionally you will iron a seam open to reduce bulk, but not often."
So with this sound advice fresh in my mind, I've embarked on more patchwork fun and as you can in the picture, I've pressed all my seams to alternate sides to reduce bulk.
My question to you is this: What do I do next? How do you finish seams in patchwork or quilting? Do you leave them like this and suffer the bulkiness in certain areas? Do you trim them down and by how much before you start endangering the strength of the seams? Do you finish them in any other way?
So many questions...with hopefully many expert answers.
Thanks in advance!
