    Hi Love the pattern. I have just brought the Tangled star die and have made a sample block. Turned out ok but unsure whether to open seams or press flat. What do you recommend?

      Hi Sheila,
      I found pressing the seems open to reduce some of the bulk was a great help in getting the block to sit flat. I am also a lover of starch – maybe a bit too much 😂. I also belive that you need to be comfortbael with how you sew, so try differne methods, although always return to the one you feel most comfrotabel with! Happyy sewing. 🧵 Debbie
