    So, just curious... what are you hoping to learn from this? All I see are seams that are all nicely pressed to one side or the other. What more is there to it?

    Thanks to all of you for showing the backs of your quilt tops. A very informative thread.

    I would snip it open at the twist and re-sew that tiny bit.

    Don't think I would ever serge seams, as it adds unnecessary extra bulk to the seam area which is already thick. All edges will be enclosed by the backing and then quilting sts will hold everything together, so I don't see the point.

    I do appreciate you ladies taking the time to post the pictures.
    If this is the case, maybe you should post pictures of your backs and let us tell you how you could avoid or re-press your work. Maybe this would help some of you newbies too.
