    Been there, done that! Just make sure your measurments are correct and you shouldn't have a problem at all. Are you going to try to mitre the corners? Once you do it, your fears will be gone. What if you do cut it wrong?????? CUT ANOTHER ONE or, better yet, add more but not on one of the ends (middle). Now you may know why I always buy a little extra fabric when I start a quilt.

    My goodness. I never thought about it before. The first quilt I made (now owned by my sister) has sashing and a couple of borders. I just cut and sewed. Now that I have done quite a few quilts, I usually do whatever happens to be the shorter sides first, if it is a rectangle.

    There have been a few of my quilts that I did not bother with borders. Do not stress your self over them. What ever pleases your own eyes should be fine.
