I soaked Catkin in a little Eucalin for over an hour.
All that puckering/rippling in section 1 literally came out in the wash. It smoothed out beautifully.
The whole deal. I did use blocking wires to make the edges straight. I pinned the corners and hindsight being 20/20, I wouldn't do that, It left little extra points. They are easy enough to fix with a little water.
For those of you worried about yardage, no worries, dude. I had a comfortable amount left over.
