I just finished quilting this quilt and when I got to the end of it, I had measured the backing wrong. It was 1/2 inch too short!! I am so upset with myself. I thought I had allowed extra. So, The outer boarder will have to be cut down a little bit to allow for my goof!! I'll sure be glad when I get all my ducks in a row and learn what I'm doing. All in all, it turned out pretty good, I think. Even if I have to whack the border a little bit.
