I am almost finished with this quilt, and I have a question about the border measurements. The pattern, as written, has a sawtooth border around the edge of the quilt, and then another solid color border. The sawtooth border is made up of 3-inch squares (before sewing), so 2 1/2-inch squares after sewing.
I would like to put another border around the edge BEFORE the sawtooth border. I realize that by doing that, it could throw off the measurements for the sawtooth border. Let me know if I'm on the right track. (And if I'm not, please set me straight.)
I'm thinking that if I make the border 3 inches (before sewing), so 2 1/2-inches after sewing, the sawtooth border will fit as before. Obviously it would require a couple of more squares, but I'm trying to avoid ending up with less-than-whole squares. I hope this makes sense. Any input is greatly appreciated.
