    Missouri Star Double Square Star Pattern

    I started to make this pattern. I am having trouble on which way do you press the seams. The instructions tell you, but all the points do not nest. Shouldn't they nest! It is very bulky at those points, Can some show me a picture how they have been pressed without bulk.

    Thank you

    Hi Diane. Welcome to the Forum! I made this pattern and I agree, there's some bulk at those points. I don't remember if I pressed the seams open or not but it's one of those patterns where there's no getting around it. Use a hammer if you have to. I did quilt this one myself (walking foot) and didn't have any trouble. There's a pic of mine in my albums.
    Also, if you post your questions in the section "Quilting Questions" you may get more answers. Good luck and be sure to post a pic.

      Welcome to the forum Diane. I went and watched the video again and I can't see where you can avoid bulk in spots, like Michele said, no way to get around it, not all seams are going to nest. Hammer Time!
