Rosee (from the board) and myself are doing a BOM for the Christmas Trees. The directions state to cut the fabric across the WOF. The fabric has children on it and if we cut across the width, the children will be heads up for the top and bottom borders but not the sides. If we cut the side border from the lengthwise grain, at least the children will be standing upright. Would this affect the integrity of the quilt top (bowing and not laying flat)? I appreciate any help that you can give on this.
