if i plan to use my embroidery machine for all or most of the quilting i try to press all seam open.
i've had the embroidery foot get caught on a bulky seam. di-zas-ter, to say the least.

if i plan to limit things to simple quilting under my walking foot i feel safe pressing to the side in most cases.

if my blocks have complex intersections of more than 4 seams i press open to reduce bulk and increase accuracy.

it took longer than it should have to sink in, but i have learned that stitch size and thread color matter a lot when i plan to press open.
