How to Create Flat Seam Intersections


(0 Votes)


If you're tired of ironing and quilting over bumpy or lumpy seams, learn how to create flat seam intersections. This tutorial will teach you how to put together a quilt without bulky seaming by ripping and pressing seams open at four-way corners. It is a great way to maximize the effectiveness of your ironing because it reduces the bulk and choppiness that thick seams can create. Additionally, when the seams are relatively flat, the pattern feels more professional and as if it were store bought.
