Tango Hands

I've been working on the fourth small quilt (OMG, this is addictive). The sleeve looked fabulous, but once I appliqued her arm on top, it wouldn't lay flat. I left it in frustration and headed to bed. When I have a concept in mind and it just won't work, sometimes it is best to just let it be. Five minutes later, I was up again using the same idea in a different manner. I took both to class last night, in about the same state of unfinishedness. The census was unanimous, the better of the two was the one that won't lay flat, but a couple of suggestions on fixing the problem should solve it--a nip here, a tuck there. Good thing, as that is the one I prefered.
