    Oh, that turned out simply stunning!!!! I can hear it calling out to me and I'm pretty sure it is saying it wants to come live with me. :lol:

    Bias edges can definitely be a challenge to work with. When I know I'm going to be working with bias edges I will really spray starch the fabric before I cut it out and sew it together. Since I started doing that I haven't noticed any real stretching problems with my bias edges. If it is something I'm going to hand quilt I only starch it lightly since it is rather difficult to evenly quilt through a heavily starched top. If I'm machine quilting I don't worry about it and use as much as needed to make sure nothing is going to slip or stretch on me. I hope this helps someone else who may be having bias edge issues.

    In answer to the question "am I going to hang it?" I'm afraid it's going to my 4 year old. It's got a ways to go though because my machine quilting class will be in the next couple of months and then I'll complete it. I've been working on a hand quilted sampler for the better part of a year which, if I finish it before she's in college, will go to my six year old. I just did these quilts to learn how. My real work is going to be art quilting.

    The starch idea is good. I didn't know that when I started this or I certainly would have done it. I have starch ready to go for my next piece.

    Again, thanks for all the kind and helpful comments.

    That's one lucky four year old! If you're looking to adopt, I'm pretty sure I'm available! :lol: Actually, I've planned to do a stack-n-whack for awhile and after seeing your beautiful piece I'm just going to have to do it. Once I finish with my current project my girlfriend and I are going to work on a stack-n-whack. She even gave me some gorgeous fabric for it for Christmas so I am out of excuses.
