I got out the star quilt today and was looking it over, thinking about the blocking and binding, and I noticed something that is unacceptable. The dark border around the center star is showing through the lighter fabric around the edges.
Because of the precise measurement of that border, and that I was sewing the row of stars to it in a fussy cut manner, I marked where the row needed to be sewn. I had gone over the quilt to make sure I was ready to have it quilted and I didn't see that I hadn't trimmed the excess dark fabric.
It's a nice quilt with beautiful quilting. It's not perfect by any means, some star points are cut off, and this major flaw weighs on the side of not showing it.
