    three guys quilt problem

    I finished the 3 guys quilt top and it's out of sync due to bias problems. Any way I can fix it? It's so pretty but the border lies wrong. HELP

      They sure can be. I was quite happy until I put the border on. Its puckering!! YUK. someone said to try pulling opposite corners. May work. Worth a try.

        I had the same issue, I just cut the blocks down and it doesn't look at all like the 3 dudes quilt but it still turned out ok.

          Jenny made it look so easy. Glad I decided on a disappearing nine. Don't think my skills are ready for the 3 dudes - although I really like the look of this pattern.

            There are a lot of things that Jenny makes look easy that I have trouble with when I try it. One thing is that you really need to square up your patches before sewing them into a block, and then square up the block. I was terrified of the bias on the Big Star, but it worked out OK since I starched the heck out of it to keep the bias edges from stretching. I have some quilts with wavy borders. No one notices it but you. Love your quilts!

              I ended up taking the borders off
