Default Border on!

I had been putting off getting my final borders on because I had to miter my corners. I made the mistake of putting the side borders on first and of course the top stretched even with lots of pins. Picked them off and added even more pins with easing in the extra fabric as I sewed. The top and bottom went better as there were fewer seams. The border is on, mitered corners look good and it is ready for quilting. It finished at 105X105 and I still have tons of scraps.image.jpeg

That is quite the quilt. I'd get dizzy sewing this one. I have never attempted mitered corner binding but will keep in mind to start with the top first. I know there is a trick but that's it. Looks great and so nice when a plan comes together.

Wow! It's beautiful, but I would have gone mad trying to make it! I admire your patience and wish I had your eyesight!
