    I went to a quilt show, a couple weeks ago. And some of the ladies, I was talking too, put a question in my head. And I'm passing the question on to my friends..They ask me as to what I do, when sewing the the peices together, and then sewing each of the sections together to make the block. They suggested use steam from a iron, instead of a warm(hot) iron. I, myself use warm(hot) iron.. Any suggestions, and what does everybody here do.. Thank you everyone, and happy quilting.

    I use steam. Fons & Porter said they use steam, at least until the water runs out and then they use a dry iron.

    I use a dry iron and a mister with distilled water. I just like my old irons and use them instead of the steam irons. Maybe someday I will post a pic of my iron collection.

    Mostly I use steam, but if the edges are on the bias I use it dry.

    I use a dry iron. If I need some moisture I spritz it with a spray bottle.

    I use steam and I always have a spray bottle of water near the ironing board for those though things that just need a little more water to press well.
