I've only used 2 LA's so far and just got a quilt back from one of these and she delivered the quilt with the extra backing already trimmed down to about 1 to 2 inches from the quilt top. I made this backing really big so I know there would have been at least 5 to 6 inches extra around most sides. I was given one strip of the backing material but not the other 3 sides?? I had planned on using this extra material for the binding and now I won't be able to.
I wasn't home when the quilt was delivered so I couldn't ask directly about this and she had a death in the family this week so I hate to ask at this time. I know I should just send an email asking about it, but I am worried she either threw it out or kept it and I just don't want to make her feel worse than she does right now. The quilting did turn out lovely so I am happy about that.
