    Life is never dull and certainly we have to "roll with the punches." I was laughing so hard I almost fell out of my chair and sure enough, I pushed the send before I had responded.

    What you say is perfectly true, but the way you said it made me ROFLOL.

    try cutting the length of the fabric instead of the width, this will lay flatter, also when sewing strips together alternate the rows i.e. where you end sewing row one, start row 2 at that end and vice versa this will keep the strata straight and not curved
