    I have a Pressing question

    How do you know which way to press? Some of Jenny's tutorials say press to the darker fabric. I am currently doing a tube quilt and even on my first quilt I found this confusing. Can any one help!

    Generally, you would press the seams to the darker fabric so that it will not show on the front of your quilt. I'm sure there are other reasons, but this is the one that I have learned.

      What Pam says is correct, especially where one fabric is very light in colour. There are some exceptions to this rule mostly related to reducing bulk in the seams. Some block designs create areas where a number of seams come together, in this case, where fabric colour allows press to whichever side reduces the bulk and allows the seams to sit flatter.
