    Default Correcting edge distorion in Art Pieces

    Unless you apply your stitches evenly across the whole piece, it's not uncommon for the edges to wow or buckle. A really easy way to correct this is to lay down repeated lines of stitching in the waste area of the edge in the region of the wow. A few passes are usually all that's necessary.

    I use a knit fusible pellon on the back of my art quilts. It is light weight and easy to sew through with machine and hand embroidery and adding beading.
