    Thank-you sew much for this tute! I've always wondered about the deal with which way to press seams, this makes sense!

    thanks that is a very good description of what I need to do. Now isn't this also important when quilting the top? whether a design or SID

    What a fantastic tutorial you took the time to do for us. Thank you so much. By trial and error I discovered how to do my pinwheels........wish I had seen your tutorial, before making so many "bulky" mistakes.

    Great Tute. This is the way I was taught. Working with my BOTM's now I sometimes press seams open because the fabric around the designs is very thin white, so I want it to look less bulky. I usually press to the dark, "locking" the seams so they oppose each other.

    Thanks so much, knew pressing was important, but didn't know how you pressed made that much difference. Thanks again.

    Thanks for taking the time to put together such a great tutorial--the pictures are wonderful. I'm going to have to try your method of ironing the seams open on my next pinwheel because I have never been able to consistantly get the seams to "spin" open on the back the way I was taught.

    Thank you for posting this tutorial. I was looking for some kind of guidance for pressing pinwheels a few days ago. I didn't find any help but somehow I did it the same way you did! I will be bookmarking for future reference.
