Ironing errors ... Completed panels

Before quilting this panel I ironed it and thought that I had removed the crease in the center where it had been folded in storage. However when I photographed in bright light outside (after quilting) the crease reappeared.

I know you are not supposed to iron quilts but the crease was really obvious when hanging. So firstly I steamed the crease. This softened it a bit but it was still obvious. So I  wet the area and ironed it - much better.

I must add i use Nu-wool wadding that is 60% wool and 40%polyester. I am not sure that this would work with other types of wadding.

  1. People at church were moved by this panel. I was not sure how it would look but fortunately the yellow of the boarder tied in with the yellows in the stained glass making it look deliberate.
