60 year old Maple Leaf Quilt Top Dilemma

Recommended Posts

Hoping to get advice on how to finish a Maple Leaf Patchwork quilt top. There is puckering in the center section. I cannot fix this problem. The maple leaf pattern consists of nine-patch squares and they are not true. I am a new longarm quilter and I am only confident with pantographs at this point. I have added borders, as requested, to increase size. What are my options as I cannot remove the puckers that are in some of the center squares. It is too big to hand tie. The lady who pieced the top is deceased and the family wants to have it finished to put in a guest bedroom. Will appreciate any/all input.[/img]

Usually the advice for this problem is to use a very puffy batting. It will take up the fullness and look pretty good. I'm sure the family will be grateful for your work and will understand that you did your best with what they gave you.

If you want to do a panto, I would choose a more open design so that it doesn't create any tucks.
