Now to fix the bigger problem.
If you don't know about my latest
This quilt, which had more than one sewing machine making the blocks way back when, is totally crooked.
It measures 86 inches long. Every columns!
The rows were something else.
The bottom ones were 60 1/4".
The middle ones were 60".
The top ones were 60 3/4". Yeah! I had so much fun. At one point, I considered taking it all apart as I did with Field of Poppies (a.k.a. Good Fortune). But I restrained myself.
I spent 4 hours, measure, unstitch, measure, sew, measure, unst....(Good enough!) and calculate how large the blue border had to be in order to fit the pieced border.
I sew the blue border, added the pieced border and
ended up short. What! Went over the calculations again until I realized that I hadn't cut the corner of the blue border at the beginning and it was 1/4 longer than what it should had been. Unstitch the pieced border, cut the blue one properly, sew back the pieced border. Thank goodness for Super Seams Ripper. I distanced some blocks to reach my goal. Phew. My calculations were right. Yes. Finally got it working!! Whoop Whoop! On to the next side.
On a very windy Friday, I tried to take a few pictures. Most of them look like that. I hung it sideways because it is too long.
Now, would you add another border to frame the pieced one?
I think I'll go play with pink. It's less stressful, lol.
And thanks for all your suggestions. You know I appreciate them all.
