Putting a picture quilt together
I have painted myself into a corner with this quilt. After many false starts getting the pictures to come out right, I've finally got the top made. Now I just don't know the best way to put the sandwiches together. l'm afraid to stitch in the ditch as it seems to make the pictures a little puffy and distorted when I want them very flat. I have hand sewn some of my quilts together with embroidery thread every 4-6 inches and this seems to be maybe my only choice. I even bought basting spray and am afraid to use it. I could not get my hands on 505 so I bought Dritz basting spray. The quilts I did before I used the safety pin method then the embroidery thread and this seemed to work fine. I've worked so hard on this one, I don't think I could start over again. It is for my son who is in Afghanistan and the pictures are of his 4 small children and his wife. Any ideas on what I should do?
Thanks in advance
