Ok, I didn't use the crazy quilt for the borders on the dog quilt. I have other ideas for that one. I decided it needed to be more crazy.
I made new strips. I tore many 4 1/2 inch stips the lenght of whatever fabric I picked and then cut those into different lenghts and threw them in a bin and just picked and sewed. Once I had a piece long enough for one side, I sewed it on. I have three rows on so far. The first row is a piano key border all even stips. All the other ones will be any size.....I like it already.
