Need Help From the Muses !!!!

oh my oh my....

VICTORIA, aka Hankie Quilt No. 1, is all quilted  -  hooray !!

And, if I may say so myself, she is a very lovely girl.  That's a vintage hankie on Dupioni Silk, quilted with Kimono Silk thread...  She has good taste, doesn't she????"

























 
 Next will come the beading, which will make her personality really sparkle.... I bought a bunch of new beads recently, so I can't wait to have bead tryouts!

 BUT - she has one little problem -  don't tell anyone - but she IS NOT STRAIGHT!!!!!  GRRRR.
She was straight when I started, but has come off kilter in the quilting.  And, perhaps that serpentine border was not such a good idea, cause it highlights the stretching that has occurred..

So - the only thing I know to do is spray her up and T-pin her to the carpet and tug her into square...  anybody have a better plan, do let me know...  AND WISH ME LUCK !!!  If I can get her square, I can move on to binding and beading!

Happy Quilting,
Kate

Kate, it's really beautiful! And blocking it was going to be my suggestion - but looks like you've already thought of that!

Whoop whoop!!
