Quilt With Us

I am about half way thru my quilt as you go quilt. Looking at it I think I am missing about 3 inches on each side! I am piecing the top pieces onto the batting and back material and I don't think I have enough for my pieces to fit. AND I missed the middle! Drat! I measured so carefully and marked the middle but things are a little lopsided. Good grief Charlie Brown. I told my DH the next time I measure he is going to have to help me. Then I can blame him instead of me. Hee hee. Well I think I can add some here and there and come out with something reasonable. Thank heaven this is for my daughter. She is not critical. I'll just have to remind myself to measure 2x and cut once.

Don't beat yourself up, I am sure it's going to come out wonderfully! Looking forward to photos!

Quilting and batting can change the outcome. That is why we should add extra just in case on the backing. I have often through the years miss the mark. Adding can bring on a new design, So don't worry. Just think this may be the place to use up scrapes.

Welcome to my world. ;) All that thinking and measuring and figuring and make one tiny mistake and Shazbot. Thank goodness you can add on. Your daughter will love it.

I feel for you.  Sometimes I'll be sooooo careful and it all makes sense in my head, and then when I go to put things together and have to go back and refigure, I have to shake my head and wonder, "what was I thinking?"  Like you, I can usually "punt" and things turn out okay in the end and I'm the only one who knows.  Well, me and everyone I tell.  :)  Pam is right - she'll love it!  

I would think the quilt as you go method would be extremely forgiving, so I'm sure you'll give it just the right fix.

You are always so supportive, Pam. Thank you for the words of encouragement.
