Right on target, at 11:00 p.m. PDT last night, I sewed the last stitches on the borders of Grandma's Scrap Bag.
I don't know what I was thinking. Actually I do, I was thinking 5 1/2" cuts for the borders, which is what the pattern calls for. Hah! Want to know what I cut the very first one at? 5 1/4"!! Now why on earth did I do that? I don't know, I don't know. And when you cut 5 1/4", you can't add that 1/4" back on, especially when you've set aside just the amount of fabric for the borders! So what did I do? I cut them all at 5 1/4" - seriously, 1/4" is not going to make a difference on this quilt. No problemo.

I look at this flimsy and it makes my heart light. It's a happy quilt, refreshingly crisp and cheery.
