Wavy Borders & All!
Today I made myself sit down and stitch the last border together and add it on. It's the top and bottom borders that are more flarey than the side borders I think. I can't figure out why, I measured measured measured, made sure seam allowance was good, etc. It is what it is. Pieced borders just have so much give to them I guess.
Right now the top measures 73X82 so it's a good size already. Do I figure this is one that is just giong to "QUILT OUT?" I could add another border to make it behave, but I don't think it needs it. Yes, the binding may chop off points on the outside diamonds when it comes time to bind it, but do I really mind? Not really, but I do mind more about the flaring because that can be a quilting nightmare.
I've got two other projects in the hand quilting stage both partially quilted already, and that is what I was thinking for this one, so I guess for now it gets relegated to the 'waiting for quilting' pile!
