    I recently purchased a wooden Press Stick from quilter Michelle Renee Hiatt, the June speaker at my Quilt Guild. The seam you are pressing open lays on top of the stick and the other seams fall away. I see MSQC sells a Strip Stick that is probably similar: https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...12-strip-stick

    I have the strip stick and I consider it one of my most useless investments! Near the top of my list of stuff I bought that I never use.

    Somewhat fussy but I won't die over it. I think once it's laundered and used the way it was meant to be no one would ever notice.

    tend to interlock / nest the seams while sewing units together they lay where they do, then get ironed when quilt is getting baking
    having used a rubber mallet to hit a stubborn tent peg in and loosing the rubber head into the abyss, dare not use one indoors, your all very brave.

When all else fails, use a wooden or rubber mallet.
    What is the clover pen and how do you use it on seams?
