Single Quilt - some adjustment needed!!

The problem with finishing someone else's quilt is this:

What the h*** were you thinking???

Discovered a major issue with the top - the two borders flare out, so trying to lay them flat on the batting is IMPOSSIBLE!I have had to take them both off, although I think I can reuse the outer one to use as a binding.

I think some machine quilting is in order, but will need to recut and stitch the borders to make sure it lays flat. THEN some basic lines, corner to corner, and restitch the binding on.

I knew there was going to be some issues, but this early on?? That, I didn't expect!!

Oh well, better get back to it or it will NEVER get done!!
