I put my June UFO quilt on the quilting frame. I was SO happy to finally have it there and working on it. This has been a long term UFO.
Can you see what happened?? I have more quilt top than I have backing. UGH!
I don’t know how that happened!?! The quilt top and backing had been hanging together in the closet for about a year. I must have either loaded it the wrong way or simply just made the backing slightly too small.
No bad words were spoken just a big UGH! Then I started trying to figure out how to fix it.
Luckily there was about 2″ extra on backing along one side. I unrolled the quilt and cut that off. Then I put the base on the quilting machine. I rolled the quilt top and the backing back. I laid the extra piece under the backing and sewed the two pieces together. Then I pinned the backing in place and went back to work.
I had no idea if it would work and luckily it did. Everything turned out just fine.
I watch the Dog Whisperer and Cesaer always says making mistakes gives us and opportunity to teach or learn….this was a learning experience. Now I feel confident that I can easily handle this if it happens again.
