Great fabrics and I love the blanket stitching! How did you get the text under the pictures?
Kathie Than you I love it too, took me forever to choose fabric....After you upload the picture you have to hit edit and then you can comment on the picture
Love your fabric. Can't wait to see your finished quilt.
Have you pressed it with light starch? I find that really pressing helps the quilt lay nicely. Of course, I'm also a newbie at quilting .
When you say finished sewing do you mean you've pieced the top or already quilted it too? If you have quilted it- sorry it's a bit hard to tell from the photo but it looks like you have, then apart from redoing it, I'd agree with Kathie - press and steam and starch. What may have occurred ( and I have an old kid's quilts that I did this on too) is that you needed to baste or pin it a bit more than you did and some of it shifted while quilting. If it isn't quilted yet (and it's just my eyes ;)- then check the seams on the left blocks and if all is ok there, then again as Kathie says press, and starch away- Magic Sizing is good too for it. Other more experienced quilters may see more to do here though too! In any case- cute quilt and I'm sure it will be loved:)
What a wonderful, bright and cheerful quilt for a baby!
Your quilt is so pretty! I don't see the bulk in the photo, but if iron and pressing doesn't work-I would sit down with a good movie and unsew that corner-flatten it all out, rebaste and resew it together! Never takes as long as you think it will.
same as Mymble - the big question - is it already quilted or not? and what kind of batting do you use poly or cotton or a blend?
The problem with starch is - as soon as you wash it it's gone again.
If it's not yet quilted, rebaste it very densly, stretch it in parts and leave it a tad loose in others (here the starch could eally come in handy). And then quilt a lot (and I really mean a lot)
If it's quilted well ... go through the awfull experience of having a long session with your seam ripper.
That's how I catch up on all my shows that my husband doesn't want to watch! The time really flies and the quilt will end up the way you want it to look. Happy sewing!
