Beth's alternate border
I have finished the inside of my quilt, and really like the way Beth finished the borders on hers. Will she tell what size she made the inner border, and is the outer border the same as the pattern?
America the Beautiful Blocks
Love this pattern! I've just finished my first block. Is there a guide or chart showing finished sizes of blocks? My first is 12 1/2 square before sewing into quilt. It's always nice to be able to verify that your block size is correct, especially when making them out of order throughout the quilt. You don't know what it is going to be fitted to. Thanks.
