I have since taken out the one line of stitching down the inner border and am trying to figure out how to get it quilted without the V's forming. Thinking I need to do away with the walking foot and just use a normal one and machine quilt it from the back to see if the extra fabric in that strip works its way in better. That's what I get for just laying the border alongside the quilt and cutting it instead of measuring the quilt and cutting the borders exactly to that and making things ease in. Slightly extra fabric and a pieced border do not play nicely together.
This looks great!! You'd never guess it was "just" using up scraps!
Ibtreerock Thank you! I think the white and gray neutralize it some and allows to not look as scrappy as it really is :)
This is stunning!
if you keep having trouble with the extra fabric you might consider a more "loopy" or wavey line that way you get slightly more "wiggle room" lengthwise .. to stuff in the extra fabric ..
Strandkorbtraum I did take the stitching out of the small border and worked it from the back with a walking foot so it was going opposite of all the other stitching and put the 'baggy on bottom' so things worked in a little better. Still has a bit of an 'arrow', but no puckers anymore and it is less noticeable. It's all finished now, just have to take some updated pictures. Thank you for the suggestions!
