I haven't finished bordering yet, but can someone tell me why I keep having rippled borders?  I try not to stretch, and they look fine after I hem them, but I have had problems with borders before.  Still, I've had a great time working on this, my first mystery quilt.  And sooooo many beautiful quilts.  Love this pattern.  Plan to use it again.

Without the sashing you're working on the bias, which can be tricky.  I love the colors - very soft and soothing.

Lovely quilt.  You might try cutting your borders based upon the middle measurements, not the pattern.  Your piecing could be slightly different.  If you cut based on horizontal and vertical measurements (in the middle of the quilt), it may help.

Thanks for the comments.  I think I have the idea.  I need to cut my borders to size and make everything fit.  I am self-taught on making blocks and putting the top together, and friend came from out of state and helped me get started with hand-quilting.  I've learned a lot this summer from QCA.

Thanks PennyWyo for your help. I went-a-froggin and fixed the black and white borders.  Laying much flatter.  The next 2 borders should go on much better.  They should brighten it up.
