Sounds good advice Ritzy, I've not tried using a hoop for quilting before. Off to look for one it's probably with my lost printer :D

Wendy, if you can find a hoop that will fit under your pressure foot(take the foot off, put the hoop under, then put foot back on)--hoop the face area with the inside of the hoop on top. This will put the fabric close to the bed of the machine. pull the fabric tight. You can then put some stitching on the face. I believe the puckers you see is that there is no quilting in this area. Follow the contours of the face with your quilting. You will not need much since you do not have dense quilting in the other areas. Hope this helps.

Wow, Wendy! Your chickens have better accommodation than my staying guests :P
I bet your chicks lay lots of eggs to award you for their 5 star treatment.
Thanks for sharing
