I seem to be having a rash of quilts with wonky borders here lately.  Don't get me wrong, even I occasionally get a wonky border on my quilts and I always do my borders the "correct" way.  It takes a little longer but it's worth it in the end.  There was a time when I would cut my borders, and just start sewing them down, without measuring.  I think I got lucky a lot because I didn't have too many wonky borders that I remember.  Then one day I wasn't so lucky and the rest, as they say is history. 

This is the perfect example of a quilt with wonky borders.  There is no way to "work all that wonky-ness in".  I'm good but I'm not that good. 

Every time I get a quilt with wonky borders, I always think of this video.  It makes me laugh and it's so true. 

I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir when I share with you this video on how to put borders on but just in case there's one person out there that doesn't know how to do borders without getting them "wonky", then my mission is complete.
