Right now the quilt measures 41" x 80" so borders are a must to make this into a nice sized twin, what comes to mind for you? I don't have any of the Mermaid fabric left, but I do have all of the others. This pattern was more than generous with some of my requirements. I noticed that if it required me to cut the 2.5" size I was told almost double what I'd need, but if I needed more like a 6.5" the extra was very little or 10.5" measurement with it's non existent extra. I suppose those that write patterns constantly struggle with this, but had I bought the fabric solely for this quilt I'd be in a snit over my extras right now. Instead I'm happily exploring my border options with you, while daydreaming about the back.

What little thing makes you crazy? For me it's a quilt hanging on the floor. I want to make a quilt big enough that it covers whomever is in the bed, but I don't want it on the floor. My DD loves to play in my bed so the covers are constantly -even on a made bed- are always at war with gravity. I mostly pretend not to notice, but some of my more generous quilts end up sitting with square feet of quilt resting on the floor. That makes me a little crazy. After all if I wanted to spend that much time making something to sit on the floor I would have made a rug, instead I made a quilt - that should rest on the bed. So that's my silly little thing. What about you? Do you have one?
