I thought I'd finished my Selvage Star of Bethlehem quilt top but after I put it on the design wall to take a photo, I decided that no, its not finished. Look at those pointy corners!!! Aack. I really don't want to take those borders off but it looks like thats just what I'll be doing.
Edited to add: Some of you were concerned that I was going to take off and leave off the borders. After I do some careful measuring, I'm going to take off the narrow red border and try to fix the problem. I'm guessing I've stretched the bias edges of the diamond cornerstones. If that's the case, I'll press and trim the cornerstones and then sew the narrow red border back on. Those borders are definitely staying!
Tomorrow, I'm going to celebrate our sunny, warmer weather and and go shopping for the backing fabric. Once I redo those corners, this quilt top will be ready for the machine quilter and finally, after its bound and labelled, it will be one of my quilts in the Common Threads Quilt Show!
