Once I looked at it and saw it was skewed, I really knew what I was ultimately gonna do. I was resisting but I also know that I wouldn't be happy with the result if I left it that way. Drats. ugh.
some times it's good to talk it through.

I'm seriously thinking of re-basting. ugh
Ahhhh! You are finally accepting the best solution.
This is off topic but I bought this clock at a little gift shop on the Southern California coast about 3 years ago. Finally had Bob hang it in my sewing room. It's so cute that I thought I'd share a picture of it with you. The scissors swing back and forth.
that is cute!
That is adorable. Glad you brought it out to see the light of day.
I really didn't need it but I just couldn't leave it in the shop! I kept looking at the box. Yesterday Bob was in the mood to get something done so I asked him to hang it.
It is cute, I was given one several Christmas's ago, it also remained in the box for a couple of years.
How big would you make the letters?
I want to make a wallhanging from a quote I found, it would be five lines, the longest line would be 25 (type count) words. I always seem to make original artwork to big, so would like some thoughts on how big you would make the letters.
I don't understand why you need to rip it. First of all, it is a wonky quilt. You could cut it straight and let the cubes be slightly off kilter and it would look great. If you want them straight, cut the background fabric slightly off kilter so it winds up being square. Then quilt as desired. It would waste some fabric, but I publicly promise that if you deplete your fabric stash, I will buy you some.
I think I'm missing the issue here. Then again, I am the president of the half ass club, so there is that to consider.
I wondered why you hand basted it. I would have loaded the wide fabric on the long arm and basted it there, but again, I don't always understand what y'all are talking about.
