Crazy Quilt Putting It All Together

I was asked how I put my crazy quilts together so that the seams would lay flat......so I thought I would post that here as well just in case someone else wanted to know........it really is simple and the pic shows my seams in progress.....
I just use a large enough herringbone stitch to reach top/bottom and go all the way across the seams.....when finished I go to the next set of seams and do the same stitch all the way across.....when all seams are stitched down I take an iron and lightly press.....be sure to put a fluffy towel underneath the crazy quilt so you do not flatten out the flowers and such......also be sure and press then lift.....do not slide the iron back and forth......you will distort the front if you are not very careful.....This has always worked for me and I like how all the seams are open and lay flat for me....

Until Next Time,
Wendy

This is a great tip, Wendy, and one I will definitely use next time I am sewing blocks together. You’re a genius! Hugs, Cathy
