I am not very good at math.
I knew that. Before I got into quilting, I knew that I had to measure and do math and such.
However, I am not very good at it.
So....let's be honest. I avoid it.
So, when I put my quilt backing fabric up to my finished top and....DOH! It is about 3 inches lacking in width. With the selvages still on!
So....now I am problem-solving. How do I fix this?
So....I have cut my charms in half...and I am sewing them together lengthwise. Then, I think I am going to cut off the selvages and sew on this 2.5 inch strip to either side of the quilt to add width. I have no idea how this is going to look or work in the end...but Hey.
Gotta give it a try!
