The sun quilt top is finally fully pieced. I needed to add some more background fabric so I could square the top up so it was no longer an octagon. Unfortunately I ran into a snag as I started the quilting process….
You see the top is a little wrinkly because my made up pattern was not perfect. The background pieces above the star points had a little too much fabric hence the wrinkles. I can smooth out the wrinkles and make it appear like they are not there but in reality they are still there and making the quilt impossible to quilt smoothly.

So now I am in the process of ripping apart the major seams and trimming just a little bit off of the fabric between each section (the top picture shows one of the seams ripped and waiting to be fixed in the upper right). It is a pain in the caboose, but it could have been a lot worse of a problem, or caught after a lot of quilting.
Next week I have a lot of free time so hopefully by the end of the week I should have the quilt completed. I appreciate all your kind words and encouragement so far. I look forward to sharing the finished quilt with you soon!
Have a lovely Day!
