The top and batting are organic fabric which had been purchased a few years ago. Organic fabric, or this stuff anyways is much thicker and stretchier than quilting cottons. So don't look too closely. (the back is a conventional cotton)
I really really wish I had been able to line up the little strip of white in the skinny border with the off center points of the center. But it went like this:
Me: Ok, I have this one narrow strip of the brown check left. If I cut it just right I can get a skinny border to go all the way around. No problem. I got this.
Rotary Cutter: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The Rotary Cutter always wins.
As does the sewing machine... We will see how the quilting goes.
