    I have been working on this quilt since I found out my daughter was pregnant. My grandson Alex is now 11 mos old. I want to give it to him for his first birthday on February 17. The only thing I am not happy with is that the stripes in the border should be mitered but I didn't know how to do it so I did it differently.

    That is one adorable quilt :thumbup: :thumbup: The border looks as if it has already been trimmed. If so, you may not have enough length left to miter the corners. I wouuldn't worry though, as it is a great quilt already. Pam

    That quilt is so cute. Just right for a little boy.
    I wouldn't worry about the borders not being mitered. I think they look nice the way they are.

    I think it looks just fine and it is the quilt maker's choice how they want to make their quilt. No quilt police here and I have never mitered my borders..
