i find pressed seams just so satisfying!

so i finished my blocks for our new quilt today, pressed all the seams open, and i've decided that seams will be pressed open for always now. this is a combination decision: the wedding quilt seams were WAY bulky pressing them to one side and then having tons of bits in the block, and, i really just like pressing the seams open. they are just so nice, especially when they turn out like this:

so perfect! then, spent all evening (ok, i was going slowly and watching girls next door, but still!) squaring up my blocks, but excitement: seven little piles of my quilt rows all ready for tomorrow! will be done the top this weekend and then I just have to figure out what i'm doing about the backing. :)
