I have been reading some old posts and have learned some new things..
1) when I measured for my borders I measuered the edges not from the middle...it won't look square.
2) Borders were supposed to be cut parallel to the slevages..I cut perpendicular.
3) I didn't know about cutting and sewing cross grain. I am affraid after it is washed it will be ruined.
I am now marking the train quilt. I have to buy a frame b/c I think the one my mom got at a yard sale for me was accidentally thrown away by my husband. We shall see. Kyia
