All was well ... as you can tell ...



and I was very pleased ... until I turned the bugger over and saw ...



WRINKLES!!! Way more wrinkles than I could possibly bear.



So I undid all my quilting and painstakingly tacked and pinned the top to the fleece backing. It now looks like I actually know what I'm doing. I hate it when I think I can get away with skipping a step and then don't ...

By the way, the baby is one day shy of four weeks old now.

I understand completely - guilty of trying to skips steps too :o(
Take heart...fleece can be hard to work with and can be very stretchy...ask me how I know!
Look forward to seeing the end result.

one of my quilt mentors used to say "if you don't have time to do it right, you don't have time to rip it out, so you don't have time to do it." Hate to admit, she was right.... :-(
