Quilt...


I have stretched my ‘Trip Around the World’ quilt twice, and it is still not square – any hints or tips? Anyone?

I know NOTHING about quilting, but I sure like what I see! Good luck getting the tip you need to have it exactly how you want it! :D

Dont worry, when you measure to put the border on, measure the quilt through the centre in width and length then you will get the exact measurement to use to square it up. So if you have measured it 150cm length them cut the two bindings or borders 150cm. If the width is 140cm, then cut the bindings or borders 140cm plus the width of border is say 5cm then you will cut it 150cm then that is what you will cut two of for the top and bottom borders or bindings. Hope I have explained it properly.

This quilt is so incredibly beautiful. I so a impressed with your wonderful work. Sorry Coral...I don't have any advise for your problem. None of the piecies I have quilted are anywhere near as lovely or professional as what you do.
