While at sewing group today I was asked to sew 3 borders around a small quilt panel. I sat down & did the job. Part way thru I realized I was not doing sides then top and bottoms. Then when all finished the lady in charge asked if I had measured each side before sewing ! DAH! that's when it hit me that I probably did it all wrong according to quilting methods.
But, there was no rippling of the borders and all corners are square. So made me realize I should know more about the "correct" method. I just sat down and sewed --worked in my head as a long time sewer. Border strips were cut.
I know it's wrong --anyone else ever do this.
