Follow Up to Sometimes Quilts Need to Relax

 

I had several requests for photos of a challenging-to-quilt top that I just completed.  I blogged about my process in tackling the quilt here.  What do you think of the end result?

I was pretty pleased that nothing puckered!  Speaking of which, here’s a photo of that lumpy border before quilting:Quilt BorderAnd the same spot after quilting:

You’ll notice the border does bow in a bit, but it’s not puckered!  <grin>  Be encouraged!  Be P A T I E N T!  Be P E R S I S T E N T!!!

Please share how you tackle challenging quilts – the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Wait.  NO quilt is EVER ugly! But do share so we all can build confidence in quilting and sewing.  Thanks!
