Pin the centers together, then pin along one side, then the other, matching up the corners. Sew the border strip on with the quilt on the bottom and the border on the top. When top and bottom are on, use the same procedure to add side borders. We've never had anything way out of square.

I don't know what to do if you make a quilt with no borders.

I use the same method for adding border & then use my square ruler to line up border seam when trimming the outer edges before binding.
