What I loved most about that quilt Kirsty made was those sewn lines running down the quilt. "That should't be too hard" I thought to myself. Well. It was. Trying to keep it from puckering caused a few moments of tears- there is some puckering and little folds on the back on it where I failed to smooth it out properly. I really pinned and pinned and pinned it together but I tend to go like a bull at a gate when sewing sometimes and well... you should have seen the ends. No one did. Except me. I covered the disaster on with a little bit of red corduroy as it, if I am being honest, really did look like a dogs breakfast. Now you can't see it and I am pretty happy. Those lines I thought would be quite easy to sew ( felt like) they took me all day.
It is probably about cot size but honestly I felt like it took me so long there is no way I am giving it away to one of the new babies around these parts.
But I like the texture of it even though the little lines took a long time I would do it again. My next challenge is to make a patchwork wonky quilt like before AND stitch all the lines over it.
What do you think I did wrong with the puckering?? Any advice?
