My sister commissioned a quilt for each of her grandchildren.....she has 10 or 11, who knows, we sometimes lose track :-) This is number two, I think. Another top is almost done--she's really stressing me.

The title comes from the fact that I messed up badly by sewing one side to the wrong edge. :-( My sister noticed after half of it was quilted....way to late. But I cut off the strips that where in the wrong place and resewed it to the right edge, then covered it with a slender bias strip. Sort of like the QAYG system. To make the bias look right, I added more bias strips in other places. Now it looks like it's a design element. Whew! Now that was stressful.

Thanks for looking.

See that slender little green strip on the left? That's the fix. If not, great!

3 strips on this side and 7 on the other :-(
