Laid out on the table is a row being quilted, complete with top, batting and back. More rows hang on the design wall behind it. When the quilting is completed on all rows, you can begin to assemble the rows into a whole quilt.
Next, I trimmed back the layers on the left side.
Sigh...this is not a perfect world we live in. We need to be flexible to overcome some of the difficulties we encounter and in quilting, I think it’s key to success. I’m sharing with you some pictures of what can go wrong in the Quilt As You Go process and one example of how I adjusted for my flaws.
It all seemed so right until I got to the end of the row and realized I had trimmed it too short on the left side! Well what could I do? I couldn’t add onto the piece I’d cut - it would not look very good at all. So I added another length on that side.
