ID ten t error

for the past couple of weeks i've been working on quilting Mr. Husker's Homestead ... i quilted a herd of birds in the sky ... snowflakes on the mountains ... pine cones on the log cabin trees ... a flock of deer...doe ... a deer ... a female deer ... or threehey girls ... i'm over here!look out for that deer!
the light isn't good enough to really see the deer - but they are there ... then i moved on down to the willow trees and the lake, quilting leaves and fish and a couple water birds and a frog ... next up was a turkey and some corn stalks in the stack of hay bales ... some veggies in the garden ... and a couple of tools in the woodpile ... and then i quilted some fireworks in the tall pine trees and a bird nest in the big tree ... and i rolled the top and backing and batting forward ... what the?!?i know better
when i removed the bamboo batting from its bag, i didn't measure it to make sure that i was placing the 90" side at the top of the frame and the 108" sides on the sides ...... and now the batting is too short for the length of the quilt ...... the technical term is an ID ten t error

Ohhhh man.....I thought I was the only one who did stuff like that. You can fix it though. It's one cool quilt.

Hey Dianne!

I'm getting caught up on your blog! When i saw this picture I thought, "Wow, Dianne is a long arm Quilter". Then i busted out laughing and thought, "this is why I'm not a long arm quilter"......so what did you do?
