Thanks so much! I'm realizing my true fear wasn't fussy cutting the border, rather it was the mitering that had me on hold. Now I can continue with confidence!

ok just to make sure I'm understanding, is this right?

1) the long-side of the borders are the full 36 inches with a bias cut angle at both ends.
2) the short-side borders are 34 1/2 inches with a bias-cut angle at both ends.

Is that right?

Sorry, I didn't see your questions till just now. I only make sure the inside or shorter measurement fits the side of the quilt piece. If the square I am applying the border to is 35", then the inside distance is 34 1/2". I cut the 45 degree angles from that point, making the outside edge whatever it works out to be. The most important measurements are the inside length from point to point and making the sure the angle is 45 degrees. I've never measured the outside edge. Hope that helps.

Your tute is awesome . Thank you sharing your method. You have changed my attitude from a "I can't do that" to one of a "I think I can".
