Here's the whole center for the Back to Nature I've been working on. Just added the double flying geese borders this morning. All the rest of the pieces are ready to go. It measures perfectly square side to side and corner to corner, but the border is a bit wobbly for me and I want to fix it before I add the corners. There is one tiny pucker in two sides--so something is a bit off.
I ironed it well--again. And starched the border well. When I laid it out on the rug, I pinned the corners (was only able to stick the pins into the rug, not back through the fabric) and sprayed the borders again--just the parts that seem to have a bit extra. This was the right procedure--right? I remember learning about this here when I was having trouble with a floral bargello and it worked beautifully!
