Adding Borders to Your Quilt Top

A superb tutorial on adding a border to your quilt top by Jo Baner. One of the most common mistakes when adding a border is not measuring. This can create wavy borders and lead to difficulties and puckers when quilting. Another trick for ensuring that your quilt top lays flat after adding the border is to cut the borders from the lengthwise grain of fabric.

    I am new to quilting, your tutorial was very easy to follow and understand. I like your quilt. What kind of table are you using? I am trying to use an oval kitchen table and it it too narrow and too short. Your table looks idea, very smooth and large.
