Thought I would share how I pressed the petals for the block-of-the-month for October flower, so the one edge would have a nice curve. It is hard to get that strong curve simply pressing the fabric edge over the template. So what I did instead was to gather that edge, just like I gathered the fabric for the flower centers, except I started along the straight edge.
Dampen the edges and gathers with the sizing, then press. I find my little Clover iron works better than using a regular iron. Now the curve is curved, without any of those annoying little points!I don’t think it takes any longer than pressing over the edge of the template, except there are forty of these!
