Pressing matters

I have noticed that several people have asked how to press the seams on the klosjes blocks. This is how I like to press mine.

Press the longer light seams towards the dark seams and then press the other seams in the opposite direction and the intersection will flatten out. This way it will lie much flatter.

Hope this helps.



  1. Hi Shirley,
    Ah yes, this is a great way to press them..
    I will do some and see how I go..
    Thank you for this tip...great!

  2. Thanks for the tip. I have just been pressing mine towards the dark but I will try your way.

  3. Shirley, very nice and thanks for the tip. I have been pressing them towards the dark for the simple reason that I am already thinking of how I will hand-quilt! (high hopes, indeed!)
    aren't we having fun?
