I am novice quilter and was having a problem figuring out how to measure for the border to fit. I used her formula and it all worked out except for one measurement, I came up with a negative number on the formula for E. My measurements were 79 - 75 1/2 - 8 1/2 + 1/1/2.. I ended up drawing my own diagram and came up with a measurement for this float of 2 1/4. The other float came out at 8 1/4. These are my measurements: A=75 1/2, B=91, C=75 1/2, D= 79 and H=8 1/2. I am going to go ahead with the float measurements I came up with and think it will be fine. Thank you for the video, just not sure why it didn't work for me.

Very enjoyable. Finally learned how to do the math for a border. I always just measured once down the side or across the fabric and then cut the border. I appreciate that you said to just follow the formula, not think. haha.. Great class. Thanks!

Excellent class! I was struggling on figuring out the math for a rectangular quilt and I enjoyed Gyleen's explanation. Especially the "take your brain out of your head" and follow her instructions. When you are done you put your brain back. I laughed so hard because that is exactly what I did. Just followed her ABC instructions and got it right. Thanks for a great class.
