I need help with a wavy border, I have the quilt sandwiched and tied. I am a relatively new quilter and I have always measured my borders before sewing them on, a well-meaning friend said she never did and just sewed them on and then cut off the extra length. WRONG! I now have a wavy border and wonder if there is anything i can do to salvage the quilt. The border now measures 3.5 inches. I have tried hand quilting on the border but that wasn't any good, I also cut about 1 inch off, still no good. If someone out there has done the same thing and found a way to correct it, I'd be very interested.
Having read the board for several months, I know there are plenty of smart quilters out there and I am thankful for any advice you can give.
i should mention that I am self taught and have learned much from experience!
