    I am wanting to give this a try on a wall hanging and have a great video to watch on it..

    NOW, I have a question though..do you press the seams open when you are done so it lies flatter, or press to one side???

    Thanks..I love to press seams open and really thought that this is the ONLY way to get those shapely corners completely flat....
