Casual Quilter Posted April 28, 2021 Report Share Posted April 28, 2021 I just finished a 54"w x 90"l T-shirt quilt, which ended up having a lot of fullness on the bottom border. Because I have a Lenni on a 12' frame I loaded the quilt with the length on the frame, instead of my normal procedure of loading by the width. That way I could do fewer passes and avoid the back of my Lenni's head hitting the quilt building up on the roller as I worked to the bottom of the quilt. Before loading the quilt, my measurements were 90"w on the top, middle and bottom of the quilt but it grew when I came to quilt the bottom border. The quilt stayed very straight throughout the quilting process and my panto was not a heavy stitching pattern. Any ideas about what went wrong and how I can avoid this problem in the future? Oh and I did baste the quilt when I saw that it was getting too much fullness. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
