My friend, Norma once told me that if there is a lot of excess fabric in a quilt top then try not to backtrack when quilting will help to minimize the puckers that might be sewn into the top. Thanks, Norma for this tip!
So~I did free hand wavy lines. I was aiming for 2 finger widths apart on the waves but I wasn't too successful. Your eyes do not deceive you...this quilt will never lay flat and I hope it will never have to! It should be a *drag around* for some wonderful child here in Wisconsin. I was hoping to wash it before giving it to the Charity Quilt coordinator but I have a whole passel of my family laundry to do. :(
All in all, done is done and iiwii. :)
ps...I just realized that I took the picture sideways! oh no...my quilt holder is at school getting an edumacation!
