I have a vintage top on the longarm that looks...well..... Nothing is square about it, it's about 6" narrower at one end than the other, it's drifts off to the left, many of the blocks are "belled", etc. At this point I think I'd rather have a bunch of bees in my underwear than finish this. Ugh!!!

Your funny Eddie, I've never heard the expression about the bee's in the underwear. Too funny. I wish you luck with finishing your top. I hate it when I have no interest in finishing something because it's not working out right. Most of the time I have to keep myself from throwing it in the trash can. I'm sure it will be another masterpiece when you are finished, and hope we get to see it.

Never heard that saying before. Are you sure you want bees in your undies? Good luck on the vintage quilt.

I'm allergic to bees!
Does the quilt belong to you or someone else? I am always more willing to use my "tricks" on my own pieces.
If it is yours and you feel it is totally useless, you could use the better parts to make a jacket. Good luck.
