Split Rail Fence Quilt Update

The hand quilting part of the Split Rail Fence quilt seemed to take a long time..grin  But finally I reached the part where I could begin to put the binding on.  I immediately realized I would need to quilt another row around the edging, but that’s no big deal.  I love the way the burgundy binding finishes it off… hmmmm…

And then we get to this corner… One would think that I am a complete sewing novice…duhh.. I did not check the back of the quilt after sewing the front of the binding.  If I recall correctly, this must be the spot where I had to loosen the pressure of presser foot.  (That in itself should have been a red flag!)  Anyway, after trying every way I could think of to mask the mistake, it has become very obvious that I will have to remove almost the entire binding and begin again… being more careful this time to monitor the back as well as the front… no matter how many pins I have holding it in place.

    the corner in the first shot looks might fine, I know it’s a pain to rip out and start again, but I’m sure you can make it right.
