One of he problems with this quilt was the last border was about 4" too short, so the owner stretched it as much as possible to fit, but it still was short at one end...
If I stretched it onto the frame it would have torn when the needle hit the tight fabric...
What do other quilters do?
Send it back & tell the customer to fix it?
I can't do that, as I'd say this was a first attempt at patchwork for the customer and EVERYONE is a beginner sometime... so....
I unpicked the top and bottom borders,
trimmed it, adjusted a few seams and sewed the borders back on.
Then I have pressed it with a dry iron to ease the seams
I am about to pin it onto the frame now.
Until next post..
