I was about to take this quilt off the long arm but as I was unrolling it, I noticed I missed a couple spots, so I am done for the day and will finish this up tomorrow or Saturday.
I do have a pleat that needs to be fixed in one of the setting triangles. I had a couple suggestions on how to deal with this. One was steam it with an iron, but I couldn't figure out how to do it with an iron upside down. I don't want hot water running down my arm.
Another suggestion was spritzing the affected area with water and then using a very hot hair dryer on it. I tried that, but it didn't work. That might be due to the fact that the owner of this quilt pre-washed her backing before giving it to me and there is just no shrinkage left.
So, I am going to stitch the two areas I missed and I may just take the quilt off the long arm and see if I can do something with it manually. I even thought of sewing a couple running stitches and doing something of a "gathering" so that I can spread out the fullness. I have more time to think about it.
Anyways, I am thinking my classes with Karen McTavish are paying off.
