    I agree. I am not making that quilt, but any quilt I make, having tried both ways...open just makes for a better seam to be matched and sewn over. And FMQ aids in the strength issue.

      Ok, so this is what I understood from these discussions - Pressing seams to one side or pressing them open are both acceptable methods. It really depends on what you want - color to not show or a neater finish.

      If you are going to press the seams open, do not use SITD method to quilt it.

        I'm still new to quilting, so I've never done the swirled seams, but I've been dying to ask someone - at the intersection of all those seams, where you pick out 2-3 stitches to be able to swirl the seams - that scares me! It looks like it would potentially create a hole at that intersection. How do you get that intersection seam to not unravel? Or am I overthinking it?
