I had this top quilted a couple weeks ago that had sat around for some time in the closet. It had gone to one quilter that had to return it to me, as they were moving and selling her quilting business. I finally decided on another quilter to handle it.
It was a bit of a challenge, as I did not want the flowers quilted so it had to be quilted around each one. Not sure if the batting was a bit too puffy, it really is very thin cotton batting, or with all the appliqué it was not perfectly straight. Never the less we ran into this problem in just one area.
It had one pretty good wrinkle. My quilter was willing to fix it for me, but wanted me to see it first. I told him I could easily fix that and let me do that. So I unstitched the 3 inch area, and pinned it.
I basted the area down and matched thread and stitch length and sewed it with my regular sewing machine. Well that worked and with a quick press now I can't find it on the quilt anymore.
On to something fun. Making a baby quilt for a gal I worked with for a number of years. Her son and his wife are expecting a baby girl after the first of the year. I made a quilt for their first baby a couple years ago, for their baby boy. Sloths seems to be their theme choice. I must admit they are fun.
oh my goodness I love the new project and so happy you fixed the quilt too!!ReplyDelete
Sloths??? Really, I have never seen one. Not in real life or magazine, or TV. Not even on fabric. But the stars look bright and cheerful. Visiting from NTT.ReplyDelete

Good for you on a nice fix!ReplyDelete
Well done on fixing your quilting issue! Nice new project too.ReplyDelete
Don't you hate those wrinkles!! You picked the perfect pattern for your sloth fabrics.ReplyDelete
Ah wrinkles -- either on the body or a quilt... just not wanted! I've noticed a lot of sloth fabric around recently. They are cute but not cutesy. I like that block accenting the square more than the stars. Hum....ReplyDelete
Great fix on the wrinkle! I love star blocks and that center fabric is fun!ReplyDelete
Good save on the wrinkle! The stars are charming.ReplyDelete
The stars are delightful and your quilt fix is impeccable. It sounds like you had a great attitude about the whole thing, too. Your quilter is lucky to have you as his customer!ReplyDelete
