I am new to quilting, I put the self binding around 3 sides perfect, but the last side is puckered, what can I do

to fix this and what did I do wrong.  Please help. I was so proud at first but this is really getting me discouraged.

Susan, You will have to take out the stitches and resew the binding. Are you using a walking foot or by hand ? Make sure its pulled taut when pinning.  Hope this helps.   Susan, North, Florida

When your new, and not so new, it really helps to pin it well. Do not sew over the pins though. Hard on needles  you should have a clear picture when your done pinning of whether it will pucker or not.  Easier to unpinned than "frogit" ripit ripit
