I'm still very much a newbie, working on my second quilt, and I've run into a situation where I need the advice of you more experienced quilters. I have a pieced border (three strips), and I'm mitering the corners. The first corner turned out fine. The second corner, I screwed up the alignment, and the corner doesn't lay completely flat. The problem is, I didn't realize this until after I had cut away the excess fabric. (Lesson learned... check first, then cut.)
My instinct is to pull out the seam ripper and go at it again. Should I do that, though, now that I've cut away the excess fabric? Or will I make things worse? As it is, there are a few little ripples that I think I can disguise somewhat with strategic quilting.
