Top finished ....



Bit concerned about the wibbly sashing (in the top 3rd between row 1 and 2) ... could it be because the sashing was cut LOF instead WOF ... mind you the other sashing is ok so ?? I'll see if it bugs me enough to unpick.

Now for the back ... using the multi coloured block.

What's LOF and WOF ?

If you are bugged by the waviness just re-do the seams in the borders and taper slightly towards the outside. That should be enough to sort it and no unpicking required.

Ahh!
LOF = lengthways = warp direction = parallel to selvedge
WOF - widthways - weft direction.

Lengthways/LOF - is more stable/less stretchy than widthways/WOF.

Will it press out or is it too wibbly for that?

Great quilt top, btw - looks completely different now all the sashing's on.  :flower:

Finally Layered ... Phew!



linky

Why do I do this to myself ?

In the end I had top resort to a lightbox under the three layers to align the back and front.

I love them all... I think the bottom one just about has the edge for me.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I usually bind my quilts in plain black if an option doesn't jump out at me

Me, I'd pick a plain colour that I want to be the "dominant" one, but then what do I know?  #Iamnotaquilterandneverwillbe
