    Green Border fabric too short (using kit)

    I followed February instructions for cutting 10 binding strips first, (2 1/4") selvage to selvage. Then cut borders parallel to selvage. After cutting the binding strips, there was just 84 1/4" left of length for the longest border. I would suggest cutting the two longest border strips ahead of cutting the binding strips. Or just cut 8 binding strips, then cut borders, then cut last 2 binding strips? Hope this helps others. I may end up having to piece my longest border strips now. Thanks.

    Thank you for posting that issue! I'll see if we can get a note included in the directions for future downloads.
