My first (mostly) successful border (wizard of oz quilt)
I used the method described here http://www.quiltville.com/borderhints.shtml and I wound up with a quilt border that actually lies flat! In the past I've avoided borders because my first attempt at one was a wavy disaster, but had no choice but to face it head on with this quilt pattern, and I won. A few minor mistakes that can be fixed when I add the border at the end after it's quilted together, but I feel quite triumphant.
