One pic says it all....AUUUUGHHHHH!!!! Can we say "Major Flare-age of Border"??
I'm having to do folded over, hand stitched tucks to ease in the fullness. Whaaaa! This quilt belongs to a customer. They are 1930's and 40's fabrics, including some suit weight knits!
Other things I've learned....baptist fans do not ease in atrocities as much as meandering can. Warm & Natural doesn't have enough loft to suck in fullness either, it is like quilting through cardboard, and unless your quilt is PERFECTLY flat, you can't ease anything in with it either. And what I really hate is trying to find the nicest way to tell the piecer, who is a quilt shop owner (and sweet as can be!) how to avoid these pitfalls.
This is my whine for the day! :c)
