One Down, One To Go

I sewed the binding on this morning,
 i love the cocoa and white stripes
I basted this within an inch of it life and it still
puckered up on the back, Grrr!
A finished quilt is such a lovely thing though,
 dont you think?
I ll start on the next one now!

Don't worry about the puckers....It's so hard to get it absolutely, positively perfect. Think character. I think it looks beautiful. I'm having serious quilt envy here.

It's beautiful! After you wash and dry it, the puckers will look like crinkles. I bet you won't be able to find them!
