Using steam all the time can distort the shape of your cut shapes and pieced units. An iron set on cotton should be hot enough for most seams. If you need a boost of power for a thick seam allowance or a stubborn wrinkle, use a spray bottle and apply a quick squirt of water to the needed area. Wait about 30 seconds for the water to penetrate the fibers and then set the iron down. Quilt University
