  • Fabric requirements are calculated for square corner borders and standard seams.  Mitered corners and seams will require additional fabric.
  • Before adding borders, measure your quilt top length and width down the center.  Folding the quilt in half may make it easier to get an accurate measurement. 
  • Compare your measurements to the "Expected quilt dimensions before adding this border". Adjust the border instructions as necessary to match your actual quilt size.
