Yes, thanks, I do know what you're talking about and in fact do that myself. I never have sewn right through the 'x', but always just a hair above it. You're right, it makes a huge difference.Originally Posted by reneebobby
When I attended my Moda U quilt class today, and we all showed our blocks and explained our various methods of pressing, the responses went something like this. Folks had problems with pressing to the right, one gal clipped, like you're talking about, and two of us pressed them open. The gal that clipped said, "Gee, wish I would've pressed mine open." She liked the flatter appearance of the pressed open, even though clipping did eliminate some of the bulk for her. I myself have done some clipping when the situation warrants it, and it does really help.
