    Thanks to all for the help and encourgagement for my problem of putting together a quilt without the puckers. I took a tip from here and there. Even watched the video someone suggested. Guess what? I got the quilt together with out any puckers!!!!! Yea!!!! I may even try another queen size futher down the road. I still have a little more quilting to finish, but it should be done tomorrow. So my sister will get it in time for Christmas. Thanks everyone.

    So "thrilled" for you. Good job girl.

    You do know that all of our suggestions came from "been there, done that". I'll bet every suggestion came because we have experienced this same problem at one time or another.

    We learn from these "set backs" and now "there is a story behind this quilt for you" and the thrill of completing it and giving as "gift" will always mean that much more.

    This is another good example never to get discouraged when things go wrong. Everything can be fixed or adjusted and another "wonderful quilt" has been created.
