Let's give this a try. Here is the first custom quilt done on my new system. This is Jan's quilt. Large vertical panels with applique. The top turned out great, however with the lack of vertical seams, it was hard to stabilize enough of the quilt to get a smooth back. Unfortunately unless I had basted the quilt before I started quilting it, I don't see how I could have avoided it. Unless I did the can trick which probably would have caused folds near the fish border which I had already stabilized before I started doing the centre panels.
If anyone else has a suggestion or trick to avoid this, please send me an email.
