I got home last night, exhausted from a really stressful day at work. I was trying to talk myself out of doing the mitered borders. After about an hour wasting time, I went into my sewing room. I had printed off 3 sets of instructions based on suggestions that I got in my blog comments. As I poured over the different instructions, I got more and more confused and was ready to give up.
But, I proceeded with the first technique, and sweated through the first corner, which came out to a perfect miter. I was mentally taxed and thought I would save the other corners for another day, but forced myself to push on. In just under an hour total, I produced 3 perfectly mitered corners!
I hope to finish #4 tonight, with any luck, and then I am hoping to take this quilt and one other to my quilter this weekend. I LOVE THIS ORANGE QUILT!!! It's one of my most favorites in a very long time.
