Why I hate borders
I'm tempted to name this post 'Why I hate borders, part 1' because I feel certain there will be further installments but I don't want to jinx myself. I cut the strips last night and started sewing the them together but I managed to fold the fabric incorrectly before I started cutting and I ended up with 20 short strips to sew together rather than a few long strips. Why oh why?! So now I'm losing a lot of fabric to seam allowances and I'm not certain I'll have enough to make it all the way around the quilt. I have a few pieces of fabric left from piecing this quilt so I will be able to add some of that to the border if I need to. It's such a novice mistake, clearly I have a lot to learn!
