All Flat!

I kept looking at my 19 pinwheels from yesterday. They seemed somehow three dimensional on my table - not exactly the look one goes for in a quilt. My dressmaking skills kicked in. So right or wrong - I'm not sure - I ironed (did I ever tell you how much I dislike ironing?) all 19. I opened the middle seam. The center bulk was decreased and now my blocks are much flatter on the table.
Flat is Good!
Perhaps I am strange but I like the back of quilt block. They look so neat all ironed (Ironing is becoming a theme!) and flat.

I'm off to work. This week is going to be much better because my attitude is improved. And, my friends that is all I can change or rather "fix" - my attitude. Have a wonderful week. Happy quilting to all!

Great solution!

I've also taken to opening out the centres of pinwheel blocks, so you get this cute little 4 patch in the middle on the back. It not only makes them lay flatter, but it means it's easier when you're quilting too.
