You Get What You Pay For
tons of skipped stitches and the tension so loose on the back that a bungled border was easily unpicked. Can you see how loose the tension was at the top? She had puckered my outside border really bad (no pictures) and told me it was bz I'd stretched the borders when I put it on. I'm not the greatest at piecing so I thought maybe I had. When I got home though the border was so skeewampish that I knew it couldn't be "all" me so I unpicked it. Come to find out the borders weren't stretched at all and it bound evenly and nicely after I unpicked her stitching in it.This is a closeup before it was quilted....
as well as this one and.....
Here's the finished quilt. Not bad for a quilt who's blocks weren't going to be used. I've decided that it's worth waiting for my long-arm quilting lady to get mine done. Her work is far superior to my "half-price quilter" and the quilting won't come out so the quilt will last much longer. Lesson learned.
