Grey Border

The Allietare mystery quilt pattern called for a narrow inner border in [the equivalent of my] blue, and a wide scalloped border in [the equivalent of my] grey. I didn't want a scalloped border, and I didn't want the quilt to be a lot bigger than it is already. I opted for one not-very-wide grey border:

The border strips had to be a total length of just over 7m, but I didn't have enough of any one grey fabric to cut them from. I cut strips from the remains of the grey fabrics I used in the top, and joined them together until I had long enough strips for the four sides.
