It's funny...I get those "even tension" and "perfect stitches" comments all the time, but of course I see where every loose stitch is!
Lightning.. the yarn is a cotton/acrylic blend so the best way to block is to toss it in the washer and dryer which is what I did. Those curling edges can't be blocked out. I did sew ribbon on the back of the front edges which helped
, but didn't cure it completely. I'm gonna have to be okay with it. I sewed that ribbon on with tiny stitches about 1/8 in apart.
