But of course not all things can go smoothly. After finishing the last of the FMQ I flipped over the quilt and noticed this:
Oh %#&*. Just when things were going well. I sighed. But I didn't feel crushed the way I did after my paper piecing situation. I calmly removed a corner of the quilt's stippling (about the size of an 81/2 x11" piece of paper) and then calmly finished the FMQ. Again.
This time no bumps! There are a few small ripples throughout the quilt, but only such that I would notice (I think). I trimmed up the quilt and now need to pick binding. Hooray! I'm going out with her parents in a couple of weeks, so I think I will deliver Bluebird's Song to the little girl whom this quilt was made for then.
