I knew the backing was going to be a close fit, but it was really off. I had to cut the front to line up with the backing, and pray for the best that I can get it even when I put the binding on. I will square it up then. Not happy right now, hopefully it can be salvaged. I had a hard time quilting this because the needle kept falling out of the machine.. I haven't sewn in about a week; so, this is not surprising. Hopefully one day I will be able to make something I am not ashamed of. The quilting was done freehand again, I hate drawing.
