    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Lately I have been noticing some very wide borders (20" +/-) to cover the new deep mattresses and/or to minimize the amount of piecing you have to do. I guess this is when you are really after a bedspread. The other replies are all good.
    For my bed quilts I was adding on average 6" borders, but think I will be increasing some of them to 10" for the same reasons.
