Can you explain a little more what you are doing? What do you mean about not getting the seams to go in the right direction?
Give me a little more specifics. If you could post a pic that would be good.

I sew the seam then iron in one direction...usually to the darker side. When I sew the rows together the seams go in different direction. The top might go to left then the next row goes to right there fore it crisscrosses. Am I making sense???

Yep I understand. I like to iron mine open. It will sometimes still flip back but I discovered recently if I take the time to spray it with sizing and then iron it the seam will stay put. I don't always take the time to do this and I just do the best I can and sometimes just let them twist. When you put the batting under it you won't notice it so much. Those seams will sink into the batting.
