In my last post i made the comment, i feel like there is always something new to learn
i just wish it wasn't always by my mistakes . . . . .
around a year ago i started this quilt, Durlindana
i have slowly plodded along making the blocks,
being a little pedantic about my seams and points ect . . . .
finally i had it all together
sooo i bought my backing and batting and
took my quilt to my local quilt group on Friday night so the girls could help me batt it up
only to discover . . . .
. . . . This . . . .
my borders had rippled, i am pretty sure it is because my bias cut triangles have stretched
some of the girls said it would quilt up okay and probably not be noticeable
but i don't want to look at this quilt and always think
. . . . . hmm the borders are bodggy . . . .
plus the edges wouldn't lie flat
so i set to work this morning with an unpicker and the offending borders were removed
(it was only two)
(super sad face)
now . . . . i really don't want to unpick the triangles too
has anyone got any suggestions as to how i can unstretch my bias triangles ???
hope your hands are working on something that you love
(and not reverse sewing like me)
