I am making my first rag quilt with flannel, and not using a pattern, so I cut all the squares 8", and batting 7", and have quilted each square. Now I am sewing the squares together in rows. So far, ok. My question is, when I sew the ROWS together, do I open the vertical seams of each row or do I nestle them in opposite directions like on regular cotton when matching seams on each row?? I hope to get this done by tomorrow night, clip my seams, and wash and dry it. Thanks!!
