PLEASANTLY SURPRISED WITH THE TURN OUT OF THIS QUILT!

I don't know if any of you remember but after I got the third row on this quilt I went to wash off the marker that I used to mark the quilt and it ran everywhere. So much so that I had to put it in the washer. What a mess, I had to detangle threads....I was so disheartened. I didn't even want to finish this quilt but I decided to go ahead and do so. Here it is, a little wavy......
but I am pleased with how it turned out and the wave may leave when it is washed. I just did a big meander because like I said, I was not happy with this quilt and felt I was doing good just to finish it.

It turned out cute! Maybe if you block it when you dry it and then steam the edges the waves will flatten out.

Sorry all that happened but looks good to me! You going to hang in your sewing studio? As a attagal! You fought the running marker and won!

Came out great!! Hope it washes up & gets the wave out!!!

I like it, Barb!! Good for you for fixing it after the problems. Sometimes a good, long break from a problem project makes it so much easier to work with when we finally come back to it.

Hey - when you did the stitching, did you use an outline stitch or something else?

I think it looks great. Someone will enjoy cuddling under this quilt. Are you still doing stitcheries?

Turned out very nicely. What kind of marker did you use. I ask so that I won't use it on my quilts.

well you did a great job rescuing the quilt. Don't worry about the wavy borders just enjoy the quilt. We all have waves.
