Folds on Backing

by Glenda Cutright
(Forest Grove, OR)


I just finished quilting twenty four 9" squares with a circle design that goes into the middle and back out again. I was getting ready to quilt the border when I noticed a 1/4" or so fold in the fabric all the way across the back between the 2nd and 3rd rows. Case in point for quilting from center out...I had finished four rows and turned the quilt around for the last two. I did the outside row before the inside row. I have a Coronet which is similar to a longarm, I clamp the quilt onto the frame instead of rolling it.

So, my question is: Is there anyway to camouflage the fold, (the fabric is solid red)? Or do I need to pick out eight circles and pull my fabric taut again?

Thank you for any suggestions you may have!
