Thank you so much for the compliment and advice, I was wondering why this was happening. I have learned so much from your class, best class ever, only wish I had taken it before I started this. I think I should of pulled my material a little snugger when basting. I started quilting this right before I started your class. So I had only stitched in the ditch around each block, had never heard about ess. I am deciding how to quilt each block as I get to them. I am jumping around the quilt to try and minimize the puckering though. I am trying to incorporate as many quilting stitches as I can, this will hang in my sewing room, kind of as an inspiration for future quilting decisions. I have 13 more blocks done with 3 left. Will post a photo as soon as it is finished. Hopefully with in a week. Oh and I love scribbling!!!! Never heard of that before either. You are awesome!
