That "Swear Word" Moment!

I was trimming the white borders on my Hexagon quilt
and as I got to each corner I used the rulers'
 corner to get a nice square edge....
 As I rounded my fourth corner I realised I had made
 a terrible mistake and had cut it 4 inches from
 the inner Hexi and not the outer Hexi.....
 What the  F%$#* 
Oh dear what have I done!!!!! 
Not Happy and that is all I have to say.....

not to worry i did the same with a hexagon quilt i had made, and i added a 2 inch floral border on it and when it was finished it looked alot better than the original. I was very proud of my mistake. The only thing was i had to make the binding in the same fabric i had used in the 2 inch border as the fabric i wanted for the binding seemed to make the quilt look smaller if that makes sense ;)

Don't you hate it when that happens - and I'm sure it's happened to all of us at one time or another. Add another border - see it as an opportunity not a problem. It will look fabulous when you've finished and only you will know that it wasn't meant to be like that....

I like the idea of another border too.

Hi Kate, I felt for you when I read your post! I know the feeling. I am sure you will come up with a fabulous alternative! Thanks for the post because it will just make us aware of this when we come to do our borders. Have a great day, Suzi
