    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 have wondered what to do. Does backing help or make it worse?
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    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.
    I don't know how to do that.....YET!
