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!
