    Another way would be to sew the strip to the side, and then sew to the other side (making a tube) and then cut in half wherever you want-you can have the added strip in the center or make it off center.

    Actually after thinking on it, I don't think either way is any easier. disregard. lol

    Thank you all for the wonderful ideas.I am sure I can get it fixed somehow.It is a Christmas gift for someone don't know who yet LOL.

    And I do think I have enough scraps to fix it .

    Purple fiend The throw is around 50 in. wide. So it's not way off.

    I will check out the other sites posted here also.I wish I had a way to post photos. But as of now I haven't any way.
    Thanks again to all of you :thumbup:

    I couldn't find where she had anything for piecing backing. Just on sandwiching and free motion and couple of others. :?:

    It's not a tutorial there-but usually when she posts a picture of a quilt she'll also show her backing. Here is a link where she shows some of her backs.

    and a flickr link for quilt backs

    Berta,
    I would cut the fabric in 1/2 lengthwise and add a strip in the center. Your backing needs to be 2-4" wider than the top, same for the batting.

    If you are piecing your backing just remember to cut off the salvage edges. It will be harder to quilt and they don't shrink like the rest of your quilt will.
