Just for fun….

I thought I was finished quilting another QOV this morning, but when I pulled it off the frame I found this:

After some picking and reloading, I was back in business and all is well. Things happen, you just have to deal with it and move on!

Someone on Instagram  posted a link to this YouTube video called, “You can Quilt That Out.” I don’t long arm as a business but I found this video pretty funny nonetheless. I have seen some amazing fixes by experienced long armers but it is very true that the better the top, the better the finished quilt.

This is true of handquilting/piecing as well! And I think it is the reason so many tops are found in antique shops today. I present this example:

No amount of fancy quilting will get this top to lay flat. Well, someone might be able to quilt it into submission but I am not that good yet! And apparently, neither was the maker of the top. And so it goes.

Hope your day is wrinkle free!

  1. Luckily there is so much dust on my bedroom mirror I can’t see any wrinkles – especially when I take my glasses off! Perhaps that is God’s kindness in the aging process – eyesight deteriorates in time with wrinkles deepening! 😉
