Do This with Every Block for a Flat Top!
The flatter the blocks, the flatter to top and the nicer the quilt, right? If your blocks turn out less than flat, here’s a quick solution. One simple trick while pressing your quilt blocks will leave them perfectly flat.
The tip comes from Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew. She stacks books or magazines on top of freshly pressed blocks and leaves them until the blocks cool. The result is perfectly flat blocks that stay that way (unless they get wet) through the quilting process.
You’ll find all the details in Allison’s article.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
