Step Back Whoops Move Forward


I worked on my flannel quilt. Got all the blocks done and in rows.  My progress can really be seen.

Unfortunately, so can several bad waves & wrinkles.  I am not a perfectionist by any means, but I think the best thing for me to do is to rip out the two loonnnggg seams, straighten the edges, and try again.  It should lie(lay?) better and I will be happier with it.

But it is coming along. 


The violet binding is on a quilt and I am hand sewing the final edge for it. 

 I have binding cut and ready for the wall hanging, but realized that I will need to put corners or a sleeve on the back before I add the binding. So glad I realized that before I skipped a step. 

 I read somewhere that I can cut 2 squares (size variable), fold each into a triangle and place each into a corner with the folded side out and hide the edges under the binding.  You would then see the folded edge and be able to put a dowel stick for hanging.  For a small wall hanging, it should be enough.  And I can take the stick out if I wanted to use it for a table runner. (pictures later).

So I am ready for a Whoop, Whoop on my progress thus far...and maybe next time I will have the top done, borders and all...
