    I don't think it would hurt to do that. It's a small quilt, so that should work.... What do the rest of you think, am curious???...

    It's darling! You'll probably be happier if you go back and stitch in the ditch. I have one that I forgot to quilt in the borders and it bothers me everytime I look at it. So now it's in the closet.

    Have you quilted it at all? If not, I'd definitely go back and quilt something on it.

    I don't think it would hurt anything. I went back and quilted borders after I'd bound and it went ok. I agree with dcquilter, I think you'll be happier with it if you do. Just be easy with it.

    I've tried to do this in the past and end up with a bunch somewhere. Maybe try a loose curl as that can be more forgiving than the sitd. Let us know what works.
