Taming the Tangled Garden
|Tangled Garden - Fini!|
As I mentioned in this post, this quilt was started 11 or 12 years ago. I got the top done and sandwiched 9-ish years ago for a machine quilting class. It was a very disappointing experience, so I put this poor neglected garden away.

• Trim the squares accurately so that the top lies flat when it's all pieced together.
• You can only “quilt out” so much puffiness. LOL.
• With a quilt that has a lot of layers, go straight for an embroidery needle rather than a quilting needle and use strong, thin thread. I used Aurifil 50 wt. on the bottom and a variety of rayons and Aurifil on the top.
