See the ripple at the top of the blue? This is caused from my bias stems that have been sewn down.
Yes, I cut them on the bias and used Elmers glue to attach them.
See here…..more ripples!
I have wondered on many reasons why.
Are my stitches too close together?
Am I pulling too tight?
( I am stitching like Piece O Cake method )
Doesn't seem to matter if the stems are really long or short.
This short stem is puckered AND twisty looking!
BUT…..my numbers here, and everything else stitches up nicely and lays pretty flat.
Does anyone have some I-dees on how I can remedy this issue?
I think it will quilt out ok but….
I DON'T LIKE IT!
I know there are some GREAT hand appliqué-ers out there that might have the answer!!
Sewing down this cute little bird on the 4th border is next!!! YIPPEE!
