MARGO one question please, I am sewing my diamond border differently than Sue's pattern as I feel it's the easy way to go for me (re TQS Show 703 with Rachel D.K. Clark) what I need to know is the finished size between the diamond point and the edge of the thin floater border please.

Thanking you in advance for your help.

I'm not sure what "diamond" shape you are talking about Jill, but on page 6 of Sue's directions she says:

The shorter 4-patch borders should be 45 inches long; the longer 4-patch strips should be 50 inches long;
(unfinished sizes). They should all be 3 inches wide (unfinished size).
Before you add the four-patch border units to the quilt center, you need to add floaters.


Is that the info you need?

I like them both but the top one is closer to what my mini will look like. I already had the dimensions figured for this border for both quilts. What I was waiting on was the pieced swag border instructions which starts this month too. I decided to sketch it full size first (see diagram) then went to work on reducing it. The miniature quilt was a challenge but I finally arrived at the best option to keep the finished quilt under 24" and to keep the other borders the size I'd already calculated. The logs for these swags will be 9/32" x 1 11/16". 1/4" made the border too large, 3/16" made the border too small, so I finally decided to try slightly more than 1/4" with 10 logs instead of 14 and it came close to what I was looking for. The Christmas one was much easier. The logs will measure 1/2" x 4" and there will be 14 per section. I will be able to strip piece that one but the mini will require paper.
