Pressing the Quilt

©2007 Publications International, Ltd. Pressing the completed blocks is essential to creating an attractive quilt.

Pressing your quilt is an important step in the finishing process. Press completed quilt blocks on your quilt from the back first and then lightly from the front. Do not apply pressure because this may stretch and distort the fabric. Instead, rely on lots of steam.

Press the completed quilt top before basting it to the batting and backing. Do not press a quilt once the batting has been added, because this will flatten it.
