I can't seem to machine quilt anything without some puckers on the back. Today's project was worse than the last one I machine quilted. Today I quilted a table runner and it was worse than the larger project. It wouldn't be such an issue but I wanted this to be a gift. I will try again to see if I can get better results.
I pin baste, I have hand basted , I have done it on the floor as well as on a table. I haven't tried clamping or taping the back. That will be next. .... Any Tips? Anyone? Anyone?
I did add borders to the X quilt and I found 2 fat quarters at Joann's that I haven't been able to find since the one fat quarter I purchases a few months ago. I love how it looks.
I am not a multi border person. I don't like heavily pieced boarders and I am not a scalloped border type. Some borders that are too showy detract from the quilt, I think. So I stick with simple borders.
Everyone is in bed. I have a night time ritual in the bath (brushing teeth, face creams and wash etc) when I noticed I didn't wash towels today. I washed everything else BUT!! I had a busy day 4 stores to grocery shop for all the Thanksgiving feast, cleaning up the kitchen, assisting with meals, going to church, talking on the phone, playing on the computer not counting the 4 loads of laundry completed. Sigh, at least there is a quick wash setting.
I am thankful for modern appliances that can do quick wash!!
