What are some basic foundation piecing techniques?

Press Often

Take the time to press each seam to the right side as soon as it is sewn. This simple procedure will make block assembly a much smoother and more accurate process. Do not "iron" as you would an item of clothing. "Press" by placing and lifting the iron straight up and down without distorting the small pieces of fabric.
