This problem is the opposite of having a wavy border and I suppose it is because I measured through the middle of the quilt.
Anyway, my question is ...can I fix this by pinning the quilt onto my big board & starching & pressing out the 1.5 inches of excess?
Or, what is the best way to fix this? I know that my blocks to form the first border were the correct size so the only thing I can think is that I didn't get a proper 1/4 " seam when I put the blocks together.
Thanks for the advice. I now have a piece of painters tape as a scant 1/4" seam guide as I think over time my mind shifted what I thought it was before.
I hate to take the final border off but it may be easier to do that than starch & steam.
