Izabella's Puzzle

Here are the borders for this quilt. It has been a nightmare - no, that's extreme. Rather, it has been like a bad dream. It was hard to figure out exactly what size to make the pieces, especially since I determined the Fiskars mat I've been using for 15 years is not sized correctly - 20" on the mat is equivalent to 19.75" on the ruler. I told Fiskars about it and they apologized and sent me a new one but the packaging said the mat was hazardous and could cause cancer so I haven't opened it yet. So, anyway, the difference seems miniscule over a 7" stretch, but multiply that by 10 and it creates an issue.
