More Progress

I finished my Christmas Tree Skirt top. I love the design and the fabrics, but somewhere along the line I messed up and I'm afraid the quilting won't go smooth at all.

See how it doesn't lay flat? Well, I got the tutorial here. It wasn't very detailed and didn't give measurements on many pieces. I shouldn't have attempted it, I guess. I'm not advanced enough to understand why it didn't lay flat. Maybe one of my readers can tell me. If you know, do you also have any advice for quilting the wavy top? Or am I going to have to scrap it?

In other quilting progress news, I basted the QAL Simple Sampler Quilt. I used a vintage 100% cotton batting. It will be my first experience with cotton batting. I didn't pre-soak it so it should look nice and antiqued when I pull it out of the dryer. I won't start quilting it until next week so don't look for it to be finished soon!

  1. I am not sure about the tree skirt. It might be that with each row you were a little short on all sides. It looks wonderful. It will look great under a tree. And what the heck, you will have presents sitting on it. You are farther along on you quilt along than I am good for you.


I treasure your comments. I receive a blessing with each one. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
