4th strip...terrible photography!

Almost there....one more row to go and then the strips on the top and bottom and I will be done....well except for the quilting and binding.  Wow do you see how uneven the bottom is?  Did anyone else have this problem?  I have know idea where I went wrong!  I will have to add little blocks to the bottom to even it all out before I add the stripping I guess?!  Argh!  It is really bugging me that my photo's are not of better quality too!  Double Argh!  Enough grumbling...I love seeing everyones hard work, we are all pushing to get our SKoW done and Chooky you have been so very patient!  Thank you!  Looking forward to seeing some more progress tomorrow.  Happy wishes from Canada!  I am just thinking I should have added a snow flake to my quilt...I love the snow and its on its way soon. Yippee!

I had trouble with the bottom too.........not sure what was wrong and I didn't have time to work it out so I went CHOP......looking great there will be a TOP in no time........maybe you could change one of the blocks on the last row.......

A snowfalke on the dog block?? or the ice cream?? In any case its looking great. Terrific progress... I think the "rule" might be to measure each row (I seem to reall 61 inches was the magic figure though that could be wrong) and make the strips the same and adjust as you sew. That is not to to say mine was perfect and I am good at "Do what I say, not what I do..."

I had problems with the bottom too...not sure what it was

Mine was out also - slightly more on the last 3 rows. I did the ghastly job of unpicking and taking a little of a couple of blocks & then just added bits to the strips if it needed it.

I think it looks wonderful and agree with Chooky - CHOP!

Looking good there....yes, I had the same problem. I took one row loose and trimmed the blocks to make it fit then when I finished some more were off. I just trimmed it up and let it go at that.

So the Amish put a "mistake" in their quilts on purpose, because it is a reminder no one is perfect but God. It is true. Chop, add whatever- I'd just say you have made an Amish quilt-on purpose.
