Default wrinkles in with MFQ

I'm practicing free motion quilting on a baby quilt. Can someone tell me what's causing the type of wrinkles showing in the pink triangle? I don't see why that should be happening, and it doesn't happen most of the time.

First let me say that your quilt is so pretty. I love the colors & block design. I don't have an answer as to why you have wrinkles in the pink triangle unless maybe that area was a bit loose when you pin basted it. It certainly doesn't look to me like it will present a problem. After the quilt is washed you will never see the wrinkles. I would not be concerned if it were my quilt.

​Since you are quilting on the bias, it can cause the wrinkles. You might be able to do a small ribbon candy design between the curved stitching to disguise it.

I find that fabrics act differently according to their weave and/or dye amount in a fabric. Also the bias definitely helps the problem. Once laundered it will probably not make a difference.

I agree...some fabrics behave differently but I think it will be unnoticeable once it is washed.

Tartan - What do you mean "ribbon candy design " ? I'm not familiar with it - please explain. Thanks

I think it looks fine. After washing you will not see that pucker or wrinkle as it will move right into the quilt. Your FMQ is nicely done. Good Job! I wouldn't worry about it.

when quilting on the bias, it's easier to get these tiny puckers, especially when you go one direction, then go the other direction. I think that once washed this won't be noticeable.

Ribbon candy looks like this but after washing the batt may puff up enough that the wrinkles may be less noticeable.image.jpeg
