I expected my 225 half-square triangles for this quilt to look a little more impressive, but my mini-tower of quilt blocks isn't bad.
Johanna puts it, 'mashing' my quilt blocks with an iron. Sorry, Johanna.
But I'm committed this time to pressing my quilt blocks properly (finger pressing + light pressing with an iron), I swear. I learned my lesson when putting together my buzzsaw quilt blocks; it's amazing how much of a difference pressing your blocks properly (i.e., with patience) can make when it comes time to fit all of those lovely blocks together.
And now, I'm off to finger press some zig zag blocks (while watching Glee!).
