    Susan Cleveland spoke at our guild meeting Monday night and had a quilt she had used this with to make. You really could not feel any seam!

    Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised how flat they come out!

    LOL, I'm going to watch this thread...
    This tool looks like it could not only be helpful, but might be lots of fun too!

    I use a Clapper (Tailor's press) on all my seams. It does make a big difference. An old flat iron will work great and a heavy bacon press will do the same job. You want something heavy that will absorb the heat from the fabric fast after you press the seam flat. The hammer flattening will eventually unflat if not pressed and sealed in place by removing the heat fast. The tailor's press wasn't used for the fun of it. It works.

    hmmmm, I'm hand piecing the FWQ & this might work with those MANY tiny bulky seams...or at least make me feel better. I think I still have my son's old plastic hammer from...hmmm 20 years ago? I bet it would work. Every time I think to get it out & give to the grandsons...I put it right away & think "I'm not that stupid!"

    I use this technique, also. It really does make a difference.
