Quilting While It Rains.







It has continued to rain all day SO, I have continued to quilt.
Mostly It has gone well.The braided borders told me what they needed and were good to do being on the outside. Other parts so far are just following straight lines except I have quilted beside the gold edging for the big bird shape. Not sure what to do next so will let it sit a while and I will think.
But there is one tuck on the side seam on the back. How do you deal with that if it can't be smoothed out? All flat on the front. I am learning by doing you see. The quilt measures 84 inches by 64 inches and isn't too bad on my big bench. I am thinking I may do some hand quilting or fancy stitching as well???

Just ignore any flaws. If you want to hide them choose a fussy little print as backing (very forgiving).

One tuck, which no one will see sounds just fine to me. Let it sleep where it is and enjoy the front.

I agree, I wouldn't worry about the tuck. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you decide to do on it.

I love what you have done with this. Very pretty thread in there. OH! You mean I am not supposed to have tucks on the back? Hee!

I agree... what tuck? And who dares to comment?
It looks wonderful to me. A true artists quilt.
Gom has been trying to cheer me, telling me 'his' quilts are the best I have ever made.
I am glad they bring him joy.
