|Thank goodness for cat kennels!|
I wet blocked the top (that was fun to try), and got a lot of the waviness out of the center medallion & paper pieced blocks. I may do it again, as there is some rippling at the outer edges and the center has stretched again during sandwiching.
I had my share of problems with this quilt. 99% of them were because I didn't follow written instructions, or watch a video all the way through to see what I was supposed to do. That didn't stop me from failing to follow directions over and over again though!
Things I did "different"
- Square quilts are not my "thing" so I added a couple of strips of fabric to elongate it into a rectangle.
- Altered the embroidery towards the center - some of its a hit, some a miss. I was all over the map with Indian additions & lopsidedness.
- Adding a ginkgo leaf stencil to two borders for the hand quilting. (I'm pretending ginkgo trees are from Morocco instead of China).
