dwil23 - I can relate. I enjoy trying to cut, seam, press and trim as accurately as I can, improving my craftsmanship as I learn from books and videos. I am lazy when it comes to borders...I know you're supposed to measure 3+ areas to get the average width and length, cut the borders to that length, pin and ease...but by the time I get there I am so ready to finish the top and move on to the next. I use the Jordan Fabric's method of sewing the borders on and then trimming the excess. As long as you are not stretching the quilt top or the border as you sew, in theory you should be fine. I've lucked out so far.
