I began cutting down the borders around each block to 3/4" and then adding a narrow strip of striped patchwork to connect each block. To make it all fit, I had to allow some of the borders to remain larger than that teeny 3/4". To get the length I wanted (60") I added some strips to the edges, and later after this is all quilted and connected, more borders will be added to increase the size. At this point it measures 53"x60". I'll be quilting the four strips, individually and then attaching them with narrow connector strips. (Click for a close-up look).
