    You are a life saver! I have been working on a quilt that I have been putting together by the seat of my pants so to speak and I've struggling with just this problem for 3 days! I have a little less hair now than I did before, but I think you saved the rest of it!
    Bless you for your patience!
    Thanks!

    Download the FREE program "OpenOffice". It will open almost anything!

    Thank you so much. I always wondered what if border motif does not fit my top? Now I know there is a solution.

    This tutorial shows how to calculate the size of the strips that need to be cut. I hope it's clear--it's the first tutorial I've ever even thought about posting. I also hope it will be useful to someone besides me--I've needed to do this calculation several times, so I finally decided to write equations for it.
    Thanks so much carol45 for blessing us with all your work. :thumbup:

    While looking at tutorials I saw this and had to see what coping strips are. I was so surprised. I have been doing this since I started quilting 6 years ago and never knew it was a technique. I just thought I was fixing my mistakes! Enjoyed your tutorial, BTW. Good job.

    I learned a few years back that the extra $100 for Word really ends up worth the price if not more.
