So, I unstitched only to stitch them back together wrong! Unstitch again
and this time I paid closer attention using the print out of the quilt as my guide -- which I should have done in the first place.
I had to press one shirt of Karl's (the only shirt he has that I actually will iron), so I spent Saturday evening in my sewing room
and seeing as I was there I figured I may as well make the backing.
Now what to do in regards to the panto, to the thread, to the binding........
