Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I followed the tute and my mitered corners turned out awesome--they lay flat! The only thing my class teacher suggested is to press both seams to one side instead of pressing them open. She demonstrated why by pulling gently on the seam. When it is pressed open, it looks a bit gappy. When the seams are both pressed to the side, it doesn't do that. I'll lay this top aside now until the school year is over and my sister can help with the quilting. Once it's finished, I'll post a picture of it on her bed, or maybe outside where it can be seen better than on my floor.
Meantime, I'm going to start practicing free motion quilting on some of the smaller tops I've made. This is going to be fun!
