Pressing -

Doesn't always go as planned - LOL - ;))

I pressed the odd-numbered rows up -

And the even-numbered rows down -

So that they would nest nicely when I cut the strata -

And shifted the rows up or down a notch -

But that doesn't work with an "odd" number of rows -

If I want to sew them into a tube -

The middle seam in the photo below needs to go BOTH ways -

And - since I am NOT a fan of pressing seams OPEN -

I added that left over "extra" strip to each of the panels -

To get an "even" number of rows -

And now they will both play nicely when I sew the tubes -

But my "pattern" will be off a bit -

So I'll have to tweak that a little to "compensate" for the new extra row -

But it will just be a variation of the original design -

So it should be no big deal - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I can't see that one row, more or less, would make a bit difference unless you are joining them row to row. I guess we will see when you do it. LOL and we can all learn from it.

Yes you always need an even number of strips for that pressing method and it is the BEST pressing method out there for Trip Around the World or Bargello.
