    when pressing your block seams do you use any spray starch or mist with water?

    Only if they're not behaving. I use steam all the time so I don't generally have the problem.

    Mostly steam. But use starch and water when needed. I starch my fabric so heavy it is like paper.

    If I have starched the fabrics prior to cutting its usually not needed, if not I definately starch, it helps to keep them where I want them come quilting time.

    seldom do i have a need to use anything while constructing my blocks- if the fabrics need any starch-or water it happens before i cut- so while constructing the blocks i do not chance distorting the block with moisture-
