Stash Project, Border Part 1

The votes have been counted and Border #2 has won.  I’ll give you the instructions today for the borders leading up to the pieced border.  Without borders, your top should measure 58-1/2″ x 77″, including seam allowances.

  • 5 – 2-1/4″ strips (A)
  • 12 – 2″ strips (B)
