    Did you sew right to the end of the seam. I would suggest you stop 1/4 inch from the end. Hope this helps. Happy Quilting.

Now start you stitching from the middle and sew out and repeat to get the side done. I sure hope this will help you.

    In fact I've only done one this way and that's how I did it. I was making a flower pincushion(the only one I did). Keep on trying and post more pics when you "fix" it!
