Straightening Up

Today I started straightening up my art quilt-top. This is a tedious process involving ironing the piece, and then using a level and plumb line (you can see the plum on the lower left side of the photo below). Once I have a somewhat true vertical, I’ll then pin the vertical fabric on top and sew a seam, and hopefully when it comes time to straighten up the final quilted product, the vertical seam and the binding will mostly appear parallel. Wish me luck.
