After the struggle at the end of piecing to press the seams in the chevron quilt I was more meticulous step by step this time to press every row back and front as I sewed and now all my seams are perfect and perfectly flat. It did take more time stopping between each row and carefully pressing but the pay-off is worth it and when piecing was done so was pressing!
