I love that quilt! Where did you get the biker and mc fabric?

I would do what has already been suggested. Measuring across the center instead of the outside edges makes the world of difference in the outer border.

Adorable quilt! I am seeing a lump. I think the fabric wasn't true to grain when the strip got cut. If that is the case, I would just baste the quilt. Then with your machine, baste a stitch around the very edge. Pull your bottom thread a bit until the fullness is eased in a bit. I have done this and it works. Good luck. And he will love it even if it was all cattywampus, which it isn't. You made it for him.

Thanks to all of you, I'm going to unsew it and try to straighten it out.

Thank you so much, I took the boarder off and resold it. It looks great so far, now on to quilting.

Again Thank You!! Cookie

Really cute quilt, and I'm glad you have the borders fixed.
