I have been recutting wavy strips that I received from a friend. Mounds of strips. She says she can't stand another day of looking at the mess she created. She cut enough for two quilts and started piecing and nothing went together correctly. She brought them to me because I told her not to throw them away. She was so angry she wouldn't stay to visit or let me help her fix the problem. At least they are 3 inch strips. The wave is so bad I have to cut the middle out. Then I can get a 2 and 1/2 strip most of the time. I would really like to help her but I don't think she wants the help. She has been really excited about quilting. I hope this won't change her mind. The seams on what she has done are every thing between 1/4 and 1/2 inch. Why is it that total strangers will pay for lessons and someone near and dear won't take free advice? Back to cutting (I just finished a big basket of my on scraps). Any advice would be appreciated. I do love you all so.
