I made huge progress on my orange quilt this weekend, but for lack of photographic evidence, you'll just have to take my word for it. I finally mustered up the courage to attempt the mitered borders. I measured and attached the borders to all 4 sides. The lengthwise and crosswise measurements were actually the same - perfectly square as the pattern intended! The borders all went on without any stretching or puckering, and I'm now ready for the mitering step. I'll take a deep breath and attempt them tomorrow.
