    OK here it is all fixed. I had to take the outter border off as it was waving--or ruffling as some said. Then I had a dilemma with a corner stone. Got past that with help from many of you here. I changed the inner border corner stone and just did plain last border. No mitering! Quilting is next. Named it "Nearly Unraveled" and not "Boo boo" because a granddaughter was called Boo when she was a baby and she was not a boo boo.

    It looks great and you will be happier with it now. Pain in the tush to take out and redo, but you being happy with it is what counts. Good for you and it is beautiful, nice colors.

    I hope you think it was worth the extra work. It is lovely. I especially love your pieced border.

    Well I got too friendly with that quilt hence the name Nearly Unraveled! I hate ripping. But I knew those wavy borders would give me fits on the frame!
