My first border for Easy Street is sewn together. Tonight I plan on measuring how long the side edges are. Just curious, do you measure your borders or do you just sew them on and wack off the extra? I use to use that method until I found out that it gives you wavy borders. Now I measure the quilt through the middle.
I started this post last weekend and never finished it. UGH!
Sooooo, I do have the first border sewn on and am now cutting out the second border. I'm not really sold on the fabric, but it's what I have in my stash that was enough yardage. And this quilt is all stash fabric.
I'm hoping it will help tie in the colors and not fight with the quilt. I did audition it and it did look OK. But I really think the problem is that I didn't have enough fabric of my first choice.
