View from the park

My City quilt, “View from the park” is done, only missing the label. It should have been blocked after binding, but I’ll have to figure another way to smoothen out the edges properly without stretching it. Any suggestions??

This super simple little tree is one of my new favorite shapes, and the colour green has grown on me so I have been using different greens in several projects lately.

  2. The edges look very smooth on the photo. I want to congratulate you on your very neat stitching/quilting, too! Do we get to see the whole quilt? It looks fabulous!

  3. Your corner are perfect! Hmmm.... maybe if you lightly spray with water and stack books on it.

  5. Everything looks pretty perfect to me and lovely as usual!

    My mother had a friend who didn’t like to iron and she laid teatowels and other stuff between the 2 mattresses of her spingbox bed to get it flat...

    Your corners look perfect, maybe iron it with a wet teatowel on it?

  10. I think it looks great, but I am certainly no expert.
    I was wondering the same thing about the binding! Or is that the other side of the quilt?

    I'd love to get to see the whole thing!
