Thank you so much! This is such a great learning experience. I really love all the photos. Thank you again!
For finishing the edges of those inset panels, would it work to fold under a narrow seam allowance and top-stitch them down? It would not solve the problem of interior raw edges, but would hide them on the outside. I'm worried about those extreme curves, though, and how flat it would sit....
Nancy, if you take your time pressing the seam allowance under that should work very well. If you want it really neat, you could always tack it down with a basting stitch then top-stitch from the outside so that the stitching line is *exactly* where you want it :-)
