    On my avatar quilt, my center panel was square...but I put thin borders on the sides of it and thicker borders on the top and bottom in order to turn it into a rectangular quilt.

    Picture please.

    You can see the quilt here sans border - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-37927-1.htm. I'm adding that blue puzzle piece to the border, since I didn't count properly how many of each side I needed. So bottom and left will be 10", purely to accommodate that piece, and top and right will be 5", to keep the quilt manageable. Just bought a beautiful light brown as the border.

    just think of it as design opportunities! and we know that with quilting, opportunity knocks often (at least in my house it does)
