Well, I've committed a quilting penalty and I feel shame - but I will not, I repeat, will not, go to the box (unless it involves a bubble bath and a king-sized Milky Way bar). But I will post my penalty as my punishment and learn from my mistake.
This quilt started as a demo for our Cincy MQG a few months ago. I love the Quiltville "Strip Twist" pattern - so easy and great eye-candy. I had another quilt that I had made from this pattern that I was going to use as a visual aid, but I sold it literally 3 days before the meeting. So I threw this top together at the last minute with a jelly roll that I had in my stash. This is, by far, the most poorly constructed quilt I have ever made!! It's bad. But I still love it, so I thought I'd just throw on a backing and bind it off and - yay -done.
Yeah. Not so much.
|This is only one issue with this poor thing. Several large puckers/creases in the backing.|
In my rush to get this thing done, I really didn't baste very well. It was a pretty crappy job, quite frankly. I thought - well, I'm skilled enough to just whip this thing on. No worries, right?
