The directions to this quilt tell you to sew all the verticle strips together for the bottom half, then do the top half, then place each quilt section on pressing mat wrong side up with center across top and press seams to the left) then connect top half and bottom half together.
My question is, isn't it better to press as each horizontal strip is added?? So, when I connect the far left horizontal strip with strip #2 next to it, I would press the seam to the left and then add strip #3, press, etc.. I am doing it according to the directions (not pressing as I go) and am up to having 7 strips connected (not even 1/3 done) and it seems like this will be hard to press all the seams nicely from the back side without "trapping" fabric in the seam (since you have to press it from the back side and not the front like you would traditionally). Am I over-thinking this??
Any other tips you wish you knew when you did this quilt??
