oops I have a puffy quilt

It is done and it is beautiful EXCEPT it is really puffy in the middle....I hope to steam this baby into submission with   Mary Ellen's Best Press , the amount of fabric you can ease in with this clear starch alternative is nothing short of magic and as you can see I really do need a miracle on this color wheel quilt! My sisters have been piecing this quilt at the same time in Alberta...they have a similar problemo but not quite as bad as mine.....

pattern from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson...measures 56 " square....I am feeling the challenge right now.....I just might put all else aside and dive into this problem of mine....wish me lots of luck!! ~Pam ~

  2. I am very interested to see how you go. I have a quilt top with a similar problem and was wondering what to do. Good luck!

  3. Absolutely amazing quilt! Would love to make this one day. I love the fabrics you picked. I would unpick the straight seams, resew the center and not worry about perfect 1/4 seams. That's what I did with my Single Girl and her curves. Good Luck!:)
