    OK I am fixing my boo boo quilt--the wavy borders are gone. Two new borders are on and I have decided on a corner setting stone. Which one do you prefer? Opinons please.

    How about a cornerstone of the red that you have in one of the inner borders?

    Tell us what you did to fix the waviness of the borders - I can use the help.

    I don't think it needs a corner setting stone but, of the two pictures you provided, I definitely prefer the top one.

    Isn't a cornerstone typically the width of the border?

    Edit: Oh, I see that it's a block. I thought at first just the white square was the cornerstone.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I love the border fabric.

    Have you thought about making the white square in the cornerstone of the outer border the same size as the square in the inner border... the one made out of the rust print?

    Once again, that is one gorgeous quilt.

    I could redo it with red but trying to stay with the brown.

    Basically I took the borders off. I measured three times to get an accurate size of the quilt and all three times were the same #. OK then I cut my border to size and sewed it on--took me forever as the pieced border is a lot of bias which means I had to ease the pieced border to fit the outter border. Two more to go.

    Could you make a 4 patch with the lights & dark instead with the dark squares lining up on the diagonal with the inner dark large square?

    Yes the cornerstone is the same size of the outter borders-- 4 1/2". The one border is just laying there.

    No don't want a four patch or plain block. I was just wondering where the white looked the best.

    I am so glad that were able to fix the border and that you didn't fold it up and stick it in the back of the closet or something similar. It is a beautiful quilt and whatever you decide will be wonderful.

    What if you made the white square the size of the corner? to reflect the one in the border inside it?

    I had to look a couple of times to see the red in the cornerstones, it looks very similar to the brown fabric. How about making the entire cornerstone out of the red print? It sure would be a lot easier.

    Might be an idea to think about, but otherwise I like the second one.

    Love the quilt and I like #1 setting but I think it should be bigger, it looks off being so small.

    Wow I love your fabric and colors. I like the top block option best, it makes my eyes gently move around the corner. Would love to see the rest of it.
