Finished my first quilting ( of the not rag quilt sort) project.  It's a wall hanging for my inlaws.  I am fairly happy with the end result but it's not perfect.  I noticed in a few areas that the quilting has caused the material to not lay flat.  Any suggestions on how to keep that from happing next time?  Also I have never done any binding so this was my first experance with that too.

Really pretty!  I don't know how to get it to lay flat either, but this does seem to be an issue with projects this size.  I think all quilted things do this to a certain extent, its just not as noticeable on bed-quilt-size projects.  I love how in the 2nd pic you're scrunching up your toes, like your trying to keep them out of the pic!!!  Cute!

Yeah I failed on the keeping of the toes out of the picture.  Next time I will paint them so they at least look good.

It's legacy called nestled in the branches I believe.
