I consider myself at least a intermediate quilter.  I hope I am not the only one that makes these silly mistakes.  I was completely down to the last row of quilting on my fall runner.  I discover that my back is slightly short on one of the sides.  Good grief now what does one do!  I could shorten it, I was not crazy about doing that.  I took a bit more time and discovered that once my binding was on and turned over the back to hand sew down I could cover up the mishap.
Well here it is done, and no one will ever know that that back was slightly short.  I was able to completely cover it up with the folded over binding.  Its a finish so I am linking up with:


  1. this is such a lovely runner--the colors are perfect for Fall--glad you fixed it! i have done that, also...hugs, Julierose

  2. I think uh-ohs happen to all of us at one time or another. You made lemonade from lemons, good job!

  3. Yep....happen to me too. I had to pick up a part of the quilting, sew a strip of fabric to the backing. What make us intermediary quilters is the fact that we can find solutions to problems, not avoid them :)

  4. Don't feel bad, DonnaleeQ, we all make mistakes. I've been quilting for forty years, and silly things still happen. The point is, you fixed it and it's great!
