    I thought I took all the precautions to have a border to lay flat. I am just sick. Now to take it off and try again. The patckwork border is on the bias so I'm not sure I can ever get it to lay flat.

    Quilt is just gorgeous and I am so sorry that it is not lying flat. Sound like you know what the problem is and hopefully you will be able to fix it.

    THAT is one FANtabulous quilt!!!!!!! :P :thumbup: x 1796

    i would remove the outer border entirely. the pieced border is wonderful and should be allowed to shine on its own. :wink:

    steam press and hand baste the pieced border into submission as you sandwich it for quilting and then use the lighter green as binding.

    that's my 2-cents, anyway.

    I agree with Patrice. It would be fine if you just removed the last border and binded (bound???) it after it's quilted. The quilt is drop-dead gorgous!
