Facing the Music....errrr the Math
I did it! I finally faced the math for the borders on my Stars & Nines quilt and I eventually got it right. This is the first time that I have had to make a pieced border fit a quilt top and I wasn't too sure of the process. I did need to do just a bit of trimming of the blue polka dot inner side borders but after that everything went together really well. It's funny how small molehills become such large mountains and they seem to stop us in our tracks! It really wasn't difficult at all and now I know that I can do it.
I am very happy with the way it looks now but I am not finished with the borders yet. I think it needs to have another round of the blue polka dot fabric and then maybe another one of the dark blue.
