    I made this pretty baby quilt but when I loaded it on my frame I left myself short on my backing as I put my top down too far at the start. How I didn't notice I don't know but hey we learn by our mistakes.

    Is there enough room to add more to it? Take some extra material and sew it to the backing. Its not easy but it is do-able I have had to unpin the bottom of my quilts from my long arm and sew on an extension. I place my sewing machine on a cabinet that rolls or an ironing board at the same level of the quilting frame so I can just move the sewing machine than the quilt. Good luck!

    Wow really. Well that is good to know for in the future. I just got my husband to square if off as best as he could. I couldn't bear to do it lol. Its grand I still really like it but it was better with the bigger border.

    Thanks for the great tip though!
