Twisted Seam Allowances, Fix, or Leave?

I am working hard at not being a perfectionist and accepting the limitations and qualities fabric has. Still, I want things to look good, but if a twisted seam doesn't make a difference from the front, I leave it. I'm trying hard after being a perfectionist for many years, to remember quilting is supposed to be a fun choice.

If I find it right after it happens, I will try to fix it. I always "want" to fix them all, but usually leave them. I do iron them a few inches before the twist.

aashley333, I also press my seams open. You are so correct, a hot iron solves a lot of problems.

A twisted seam is as annoying to me as a twisted pantyhose leg.

It probably won't kill me to leave it "as is" - but I feel a lot better after I have fixed it.

Just clip it and iron it flat to the correct side.
Problem solved.
