Gini - great directions. You are correct all the borders will have the same angle.

While sitting in a BOM this morning, (OK so I should add here I taught Alg and Geom - lol - and I was very bored this morning), I sat with a ruler and graph paper - playing with the angles. I assume that the corner block in the quilt center is "on point". So, starting with that, what I came up with (with having only one cup of coffee and being at the LQS at 8AM) it was going to be an  "odd" angle - actually about  22.5 degrees  not 45 degrees. 

No matter what angle it is, however,  Gini's directions should get you there without any difficulty.

WOW!!!!  I want to thank all of you quilters that came to my rescue.  I ended up making the corners just like Gini described in her reply and they turned out great!!!!!  I will get my backing on and have it quilted and when I get it back I will post pictures of it.  I am so very happy with the way it has turned out.  For coping it from a Facebook picture, I think I hit the nail on the head.  All your help made it happen.  Thanks again.  Until later.......Ellie
