    Been working on these 2 quilts for quite some time. Keep stopping and starting something else. Fancy Feathers will have a 4 1/2" white border all around and have a scrappy binding from the same strips as the 1st border.

    Purple Waves is ready to sandwich except when I hung it up to take the photo it doesn't seem to be hanging straight. Don't know how to go about correcting the problem. Can you help?

    Both these patterns were in Australian Patchwork and Quilting Annual 2009.

    Thanks for looking.

    Are you sure it is not just the "waves" making it look uneven?? Looks good from here LOL! You should probably measure it to see if it is longer or wider in some places and try to make corrections to remedy it.

    They are both terrific! Great job!

    Try hanging Purple Waves the horizontal way, or re-measure your quilt dimensions: Center to center; where the border is attached to the patchwork squares; and end to end. See where there is a discrepancy.

    Great mix of applique and piecing in the first one.

    Were the feathers hand or machine appliqued?
    A ton of work either way.

    And the wavy log cabin is terrific.

    eta - I was so enthralled looking at the LC waves I didn't even notice the fabulous applique on the top and bottom. I really, really, like the layout.

    And the quilt itself looks even to me, even though it might be hanging a bit slanted.
